His skill kept getting better and better and he got a second rank as the world’s best player in the 2010/11 season.

In 2015, Iniesta continued his golden career as a great footballer. He helped FC Barcelona win the European Champions League trophy.

Not only that, but he also won the La Liga and Copa del Rey trophies. Because of those achievements, Iniesta became one of seven great names that managed to win two treble-winners with FC Barcelona.

After officially leaving La Blaugrana in 2018, Iniesta went to Japan to join Vissel Kobe. His farewell to the Catalan giant felt very touching as he was very attached to the team.

Besides football Iniesta has some other life achievements. A student once told his idea to Iniesta that they want to say NO to bullying at schools and that they have been working on it for months. Iniesta loved his idea so much that he decided to be the image and the voice against the bullying in schools.

For 50 years, “Terre des Hommes” has been at the forefront of protecting children all over the world from violence, abuse and exploitation; and has been working to ensure every child has access to school, informal education, medical care and food. The organization is currently present in 69 countries, with almost 1,046 projects that support children and their families.

Anna Ortiz family

Another interesting

is that before going to Japan to play for Vissel Kobe, Iniesta and his family lived in Barcelona. But now he had to be away from his family and that have been terribly hard for him for the past 2 years.

“It is a very difficult situation because you are not there with them, with your loved ones. You can't see what is happening on a daily life level so that is difficult but we keep talking on a daily basis, checking in with them and just hoping that the situation gets better.” Iniesta said.

But what about before he got married to Anna?

As said before Iniesta was born in small village named

Fuentealbilla

, in the 

province of Albacete

Castile–La Mancha

. In the year 1996 he had travelled with his parents all the way from the tiny village, to Barcelona.

A glimpse of what Andres’ feet could do with a football had convinced then FC Barcelona youth team coach and family acquaintance Enrique Orizaola that the boy had it in him to be a part of the club’s academy.

Just twenty days after arriving at La Masia, Andres Iniesta found himself making his first appearance in an FC Barcelona shirt for the club’s under-14 B team.

In three years, Iniesta would go on to wear the captain’s armband to lead Barcelona’s Under-15 side in the 1999 Nike Premier Cup.

This kept going on and on until 2010 the night that was the best night for Spain. It is minute one hundred and sixteen and Spain are playing Netherlands in the final of the football World Cup.  

Andres Iniesta attains catharsis as he connects with a mischievous Jo’bulani with his right foot just as a frantic van der Vaart lunges in an attempt to block the shot.

Stekelenburg, the Dutch goalkeeper, gets a hand to the ball, but the impish little orb has ears only for the commands of Don Andres’ feet. It bounces off a bit from the Stekelenburg’s hand.

And deliverance came as Andres Iniesta, in celebration of his goal, removed his jersey to reveal an undershirt with a handwritten message: Dani Jarque Siempre Con Nosotros Dani Jarque, always with us.

That night was, Iniesta was so goos that I totally forgot that I was going to talk about

Fuentealbilla

.

Fuentealbilla

is located to the northeast of the city of 

Albacete

and if you try to google it the only thing that matter the most to this village and its people is that the great Andres Iniesta was born there. Trust me I googled it like a hundred times.

This family has been apart since Andres has to be away for his team. He now lives in a port city in western Japan.

Apart from being a player at the Japanese club, His new challenges include training young Japanese players as a part of a soccer academy under Vissel Kobe, where he seeks to bring together positive things of local players with concepts from outside. Iniesta predicts a bright future for Japanese football and hopes for big achievements in the near future.

Is Iniesta one of the biggest Barcelona’s players?

The answer is YES for sure.

FC Barcelona and Spain are both were blessed with one of the best spells in their respective histories – winning trophy after trophy. It’s not a coincidence that both these teams call on the services of what is dubbed as the best midfield pairing in all of world football, Xavi & Iniesta.

Johan Cruyff (1973-1978)

-

Maradona (1982-1984) - Bernd Schuster (1980 – 1988) - Guillermo Amor (1988 – 1998) - Michael Laudrup (1989 – 1994) - Josep “Pep” Guardiola (1990-2001) - Luis Enrique (1996-2004) - Xavi Hernandez (1998-2015) - Deco (2004-2008) - Iniesta (2002-2018)
