Andres Iniesta has spent more than half of his life as a member of Barcelona, but could that be changing this summer?
Lamenting Barca’s inability to topple Atletico Madrid on the weekend, a draw that left his club in La Liga’s second place, the 30-year-old did not sound like a committed man after the game (even though his contract with the club runs through the 2018 season).
“We were relying on winning this game. We haven’t and that makes this season disappointing, because if we had won, everything would be different.
“The season is over, lots of things are over.”
It’s worth noting that we’re talking about plenty of potential translation, meaning and personality issues at play here, but it has not been an ideal season at Barcelona and there’s managerial change in the air after Tata Martino resigned and Luis Enrique took over.
“It was a sad end. We had it until the end. We have to congratulate Atletico. They are deserving champions,” he told Canal Plus.
“We have failed, as a group. We had chances until the last match, like them. Atletico have been better, and are champions. There is nothing to say.”
