Ahead of his departure at the end of the season, Andres Iniesta has said that he would like to return to Barcelona one day.
The midfielder is still yet to reveal his destination for next year but, in an exclusive interview with Mundo Deportivo, he insists he would like to pass on his knowledge in the future.
“Let’s see how everything goes because it has been a difficult decision and it’s not easy to leave here,” admitted Iniesta.
“I now have a challenge, a new experience on a personal and family level, and I’ll have made two very important journeys in my life: from Fuentealbilla to Barcelona and from Barcelona to who knows where.
“There will be new things that will enrich both myself and my family a lot and I’m looking forward to it. After that, we’ll see what happens in the coming years.
“Hopefully, I can come back one day and transmit what I have learned and what I think is positive for the club, the people in the youth set-up and the first team.”
Iniesta was asked if he intended doing his coaching badges, such as former teammates Xavi Hernandez and Victor Valdes, and if he wanted to work with professionals or youngsters in the future.
“I don’t know. I think what will happen is that I’ll get the title of Coach and in the end, like everything, start little by little and try to move up.
“I’ll try to do things to the fullest, the things I feel most comfortable with, and the ones that most fit with the people who determine a certain moment,” he concluded.
