Andres Iniesta plans to return to Barcelona after his retirement from professional football next year. Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta has revealed he plans to return to Azul Grana. After retiring from professional football with Vissel Kobe next year, he revealed to La Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday. 

Iniesta played for Azul Grana from 2002 to 2018 before joining Vissel Kobe until now. The 38-year-old has revealed that he would like to return to Barcelona at some point following the end of his career.

‘I’m going to spend another year here. Then we’ll see.’ said Iniesta. ‘I want to go back to Barcelona, ​​but I don’t know what role, coach, sporting director or whatever. In any case, I’ll have to build myself. I still see myself as a footballer.’ UFABET

Iniesta also mentioned Barcelona’s ‘Spotify Camp Nou’ match against Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday. This is a game in which the Azul Grana team need a single victory to maintain their hopes of competing for a ticket to the next round.

‘Victory is important for Barcelona to maintain their hopes of qualifying, Inter have a great team. So it will be difficult.’

‘I expect Barcelona to attack while Inter will defend deep because a draw will be good for them. The details will decide the Champions League game, but Barcelona have a chance to move forward.’

‘From the outside, I can see that there is emotional instability at Barcelona, ​​a win will increase confidence. But the defeat was enough for any doubt to arise.’

‘I believe they have found a great style of play and a complete team. It’s been a great season so far,’ the 38-year-old said.
