Eto'o, Elneny, Boateng pay tribute to Andres Iniesta — EXTRA TIME

Iniesta continued: "My only aim was to be a success at this club and I have done that". What about his impudent dink against Real Madrid in the 2011 Supercopa Espana, or his 16 assists in La Liga over the course of the 2012/13 season, or his show-stopping performance in his last ever Copa del Rey final last week?

"To Barcelona's fans, who have seen me grow up and followed every step I have taken, and been with me through the good times and the bad", Iniesta said.

"It's a very difficult day for me because I've been here all my life and to say goodbye to my home and my life here is very hard".

Many still consider an injustice that Iniesta did not receive the Golden Ball in that 2010 and this week the magazine "France Football", which since 1956 delivers the award, he apologized for never having recognized him as the best in the world.

Asked how he would like to be remembered, Iniesta said: "It's easy, I want to be remembered as a great football player and a great person". I leave feeling useful, feeling important, starting games and winning titles. He went on to become one of the best players in its history, helping the team win 31 titles - a club record he shares with Messi.

The attacker had 125 caps for the Spanish national team and will be representing his country for the last time at the World Cup this summer.

These comments anxious the victim's family who felt this could weigh with the High Court to transfer the case to CBI. The case will be heard again on July 23.

Iniesta, who turns 34 in May, called a news conference on Friday to announce his decision, with Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu, coach Ernesto Valverde and teammates all present.

"Iniesta said:" I have always thought that the club which welcomed me when I was 12-years-old deserves all the best from me.

Iniesta, who also won the European Championship twice and scored Spain's winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final, is one of the most decorated graduates from Barcelona's famed La Masia academy and played alongside Guardiola, before working under him when the now Manchester City boss was in charge of the Blaugrana.

Iniesta is likely to win his 35 medal when Barcelona wrap up the Primera Divisón title in the coming weeks before he moves on. I don't want to kid anyone.

This year, Iniesta will play for Spain at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"Because when our football days are over, that's all we are - people".
