Barcelona's Andres Iniesta confirms plan to leave at end of season

Instead the title went to his Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi for his second of five titles

This year, Iniesta will play for Spain at the World Cup in Russian Federation. "It was clear then that he deserved it".

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has hailed Andres Iniesta as the club's "most important player" since 2004 as the midfielder nears the end of his spell at Camp Nou.

"This press conference is to make public the decision that this season will be the last season here".

"I want to thank my teammates", he said. Soon, I'll be 34 and I have given everything over the year. I would not feel good not being able to give my best for this club. "To share with him so many magical moments is a privilege because I understand there is no other player like him". He has enjoyed a glittering career for club and country, and said today: "This is my last season here".
