Iniesta looking forward to next year

Andres Iniesta says he is looking forward to next year after an unacceptable 2014 by Barcelona’s high standards.

In an interview with Mundo Deportivo, the Spain international revealed he is confident things will improve in 2015 and Barca will fight for every trophy they are involved in.

“When you don’t accomplish your objectives there can never be a positive balance, but we’ll try to be totally different this coming year,” reflected Iniesta.

“On a personal level I want to continue enjoying what I do and achieve the aims set out for us, so everyone can be proud of the team.

“In the first part of the season there was a good feeling, but now I feel more part of a team. My game has got better but at the same time I’m also demanding and self-critical.

“You try to control all situations, yet the only thing that matters to me is that the fans see me on the pitch enjoying myself, that they feel proud of me and see me playing my best football.

“When I don’t do that I work harder and from there I prepare as best I can to reach that point.

“We are coming from having a bad year and it makes it a little difficult in the way you see things, but I think we are on the right track.

“What happens next year needs to be better and I’m confident that this team is going to fight for everything.”

Iniesta was asked if it had been difficult in adapting to a new game plan under boss Luis Enrique this season.

“I don’t see it that way. I see it as trying to play well, to combine and make it a more spectacular game.

“Each player plays as he knows how and must always adapt to what the Coach asks of him, but eventually he plays with what’s inside him.

“For me it’s more a question of all being well and everyone being fine. Doing this is how we will be able to fight for everything,” he declared.
