Andre Iniesta (39, Spain) left Japan and moved to the UAE (United Arab Emirates) stage.
On the 8th (Korean time), Emirates Club, a club in the UAE Pro League, said, “We have recruited Iniesta, a legendary Spanish soccer player.” Iniesta held a large bouquet of flowers and posed for a commemorative photo with senior Emirates Club officials.안전놀이터
Iniesta has recently been rumored to transfer to Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States. His likely destination was Inter Miami. Inter Miami signed star players Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba from FC Barcelona this summer.
Iniesta was also one of the candidates for recruitment. David Beckham, owner of Inter Miami, sent a strong love call to former Barcelona players. Messi has already caused a syndrome by debuting on the American stage, and Busquets and Alba are also showing performances beyond expectations.
Iniesta, who was highly likely to go to the United States, headed to the Middle East. Iniesta ended his career in Vissel Kobe in the Japanese J-League and joined hands with the Emirates club, a mid-lower team in the UAE. Emirates Club is a team that has been promoted from the UAE 2nd Division to the 1st Division ahead of the 2023-24 season.
Iniesta, from Barcelona’s youth academy, only played for Barcelona until the 2017-18 season. Here he has won countless trophies. He has won the La Liga title nine times, the King’s Cup six times, and the UEFA Champions League (UCL) four times.
The summer of 2018 surprised everyone. After saying goodbye to Barcelona, I left for Vissel Kobe in the Japanese J-League. He also played for a long time in Vissel Kobe. For five years until last June, he scored 26 goals and 25 assists in 134 appearances for Vissel Kobe. He held a farewell ceremony on June 6 this year in a friendly match between Vissel Kobe and Barcelona. Iniesta, who is about to enter his 40s, plans to spend the twilight of his career in the Middle East, not in the United States.
