Andres Iniesta Names The Best Player He's Ever Seen
FC Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta, who has played alongside greats such as Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi and African superstar Samuel Eto'o, has named the best player he has ever seen.
Since his debut for the Catalan club in 2002, Iniesta has been fortunate enough to line up with some of the very best players to have graced the beautiful game.
Earlier in his career, the Spanish midfielder often watched from the bench as the likes of Ronaldinho, Eto'o and Deco lit up LaLiga, but later it would be his turn.
Iniesta, who himself became one of the best midfielders to play not only in Spain, but in the world, was recently asked about Messi's status in football, and the 34-year-old declared him to the best he has ever witnessed.
"He (Messi) is the best I have seen on a football pitch," Iniesta told RAC1.
"There's nobody else like him."
Messi and Iniesta became senior team colleagues at Barca in 2005, and have since changed the game for the better.
Along with their former teammate Xavi, the pair were part of arguably one of the best footballing sides the world has seen under the guidance of for Blaugrana boss Pep Guardiola.
