Andres Iniesta’s Best Teammates XI, African Snubbed
After Andres Iniesta announced his departure from FC Barcelona, BleacherReport put together his best teammates XI, but an African superstar was controversially snubbed.

The 33-year-old will leave the Catalan giants at the end of the season, with reports suggesting he will sign a bumper deal in China.
To honour the legacy of Spain’s most decorated player – the 2017/18 LaLiga trophy is his 35th career title – BleacherReport selected an illustrious line-up with his best ever teammates.
Victor Valdes was chosen in goal, while Dani Alves, Carles Puyol, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba were named in defense.
The central midfield is made up of Sergio Busquets, Xavi Hernandez and Iniesta himself, while Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho are covering the wings.
Upfront, Thierry Henry received the notch ahead of Africa’s most decorated export Eto’o.
The Cameroon international’s omission seems the only questionable selection because Eto’o scored 130 goals and assisted another 41 in 199 games for the club, while Henry netted 49 times in 121 appearances for the Blaugrana and set up another 27. Both won eight trophies during their time at the Camp Nou.
