Andres Iniesta has claimed that he always enjoyed playing against teams built by Manchester United great Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Spaniard is one of the finest and most decorated footballers of our generation, winning nine La Liga’s, four Champions League titles and of course the 2010 World Cup as part of his impressive haul of 35 major honours.
Two of those honours game against Manchester United, as the Blaugrana beat Sir Alex Ferguson’s side in the 2009 and 2011 Champions League finals, but now the Spanish legend has revealed that he has the utmost respect for the long-standing United boss:
“You have to give huge respect to Ferguson,” he says.
“Not just for the career he had but for the way he did things.
“And not just for all that he won but for the fact that he won most of it at the same club. There is enormous merit in that.
“It was always a pleasure to play against the teams he built.”
Iniesta has finally ended his stellar career with Barcelona, and will complete a move to Japanese side Vissel Kobe this summer after 16 years at the Nou Camp.
