The Legend Iniesta

Authentic Andres Iniesta Signed Memorabilia

For the largest part of modern football history, Spain have been one of the most dominant teams on the European national front. While success at international level was hard to come by until 2008, when the country won three international titles in a row, they regularly produced some of the most exciting teams at European Championship and FIFA World Cup events.

However, the real revolution – the catalyst for success from 2008-2012 – stemmed from a generation of unique players who came through the Barcelona system. As a generation reared on the wonderful possession-based style of the past, they modernised the game in the 21st century and went on to become dominant at both club and international level.

Chief among this golden generation of stars, though, was one of the most unassuming players of them all; Andres Iniesta. Born on May 11th, 1984, in Fuentealbilla, Iniesta joined the famous Barcelona academy at the age of 12 and has never looked back.

The Beginning


Having made a promising start to his career with Under-17s and Under-19s European Championship victories in 2001 and 2002, the name Iniesta would not be a household one for another few years yet. He made his first-team debut for his boyhood club in October 2002, and by 2005 he was a regular in a title-winning squad.camp nou stadium

However, he really came to international prominence when – following an injury-hit season from compatriot and friend Xavi – he was a key asset in a Barcelona side that won the league and the Champions League in 2006.

At this point, the beginning of the birth of a legend was en route. Already well-respected by Barcelona fans, his international and European performances were beginning to draw attention from clubs all across the world. Fans began to hear the name more and more – Iniesta, Iniesta, Iniesta…

 Not Yet In The Spotlight


His quiet and respectable demeanour, though, meant other players were always mentioned ahead of him in discussions about top players. Never a regular goal scorer, much of what Iniesta done on a pitch went unseen – until the team would score.

By 2008, though, he came to prominence in a way that few would have thought possible. Spain went to the 2008 European Championships emboldened by the growth of stars like David Silva, David Villa, Fernando Torres and, of course, Iniesta.

Using his cerebral connection with teammates, Iniesta became the beating heart of a Spain side that won an incredible amount in the years to come. In 2008, he established himself as a household name when a 1-0 win in the Final seen Spain crowned two-times European champions.

By 2008-09, he enjoyed a wonderful season with his club when he rose to the very peak of his form. That year, with Pep Guardiola – an idol of his as a youngster – in charge, the club went through a rebirth and alongside names like Lionel Messi and Samuel Eto’o, the club won an incredible treble. Wins such as a decisive 6-2 win at the Bernabeu, where Iniesta took centre stage, and an incredible 2-0 win in the Champions League Final against a stunning Manchester United side – made to look ordinary on the night as Iniesta ran the show – took place.Andres Iniesta lifting a trophy

That Final, though, would never have taken place without him. Trailing to Chelsea of London in the semi-finals,
Iniesta hit an incredible first-time hit from the edge of the box that screamed into the top corner, sending Barcelona through to the Final at the expense of the previous years beaten finalists.

Despite not being a regular goalscorer, Iniesta has a knack for scoring when he is needed most. Take the 2010 World Cup, where he scored the decisive goal in a near-perfect run to the final. After a cagey match where very few chances were presented, Arjen Robben missing a one-on-one for opponents Netherlands aside, Iniesta broke through and scored the winner.

Never thinking of himself, he whipped his shirt off to show a message of support to fallen friend Dani Jarque, who had tragically died playing for local rivals Espanyol. Even in the moment that culminates an entire life’s work, Iniesta found the time to pass the message on to someone else.

Awards and Trophies


The player himself has been a critical part of multiple Barcelona and Spain sides, with major wins at the 2012
European Championships backed up by a double and a treble under Luis Enrique, where again Iniesta was a star cog.

Now approaching the end of a truly stellar career, it’s a shame that sport never looks at the creator, only the decider. Having finished 2nd in the Ballon d’Or – the prize given to the best player in the world – to Lionel Messi in 2010, he’s never come closer to winning an award he almost certainly deserved.

While he did win the prestigious UEFA Best Player In Europe award, it would be hard to find a player of the same consistency, quality and class as the Spaniard over such a long period of time. He might not be in the headlines every week, but he’s the one who makes sure that club and international teammates get to enjoy the limelight.

Recently, he signed a ‘contract for life’ with the team he loves so much, securing his future with them for the rest of his professional career. Andres, we salute you!

With 8 La Liga titles, 5 Copa del Rey titles, 4 Champions League titles and 3 FIFA Club World Cups to match his trio of international trophies Iniesta can hang up his boots – hopefully not anytime soon – knowing he’s achieved more than the majority of clubs, nevermind players!
