End of an era

It’s now the end of an era for Barcelona, as Andres Iniesta has announced he will be leaving the club come the end of the season – and understandably, the fans are gutted.

It had been rumoured the player was set to leave, but seeing the news confirmed was obviously a different kettle of fish altogether, and it wasn’t just Barcelona fans who were upset at the prospect of a game without one of the best players to have the ball at his feet.

Even Real Madrid fans came out to praise the one man they actually liked or at least tolerated from the Barcelona side, and have given standing ovations to in the past as well.

The football world made sure to pay their respects to the outgoing player – who will be moving to China according to sources close to him – and will win one final La Liga title before that happens – and with both Xavi and Iniesta gone come next season, it’s a time of change for Barcelona.
