Andrés Iniesta’s goodbye at FC Barcelona on Friday reached its penultimate act. The young lad from Fuentealbilla who arrived at the Club 22 years ago and will leave at the end of the season was given an emotional official Club farewell in the presence of a whole host of guests.
Camp Nou put on its best face for the event that was hosted by the Catalan comedian and presenter Jordi Évole. Members of the first team squad, coaching staff, former team mates, members of the Board of Directors as well as figures from the world of sport such as Marc and Pau Gasol to name but a few.
Also present were Iniesta’s family who were the recipients of the most emotional part of his closing speech. His parents, his wife and other relatives were all present, their role in the midfielder’s success all too obvious.
