Andres Iniesta says it is his dream to end his playing career at Barcelona and hopes to stay connected to the club after he retires.
“Let’s hope so!” he told the club’s official website when asked if he will retire in Catalunya. “That’s my dream and has been for a long time.
“When you start and everything is new, you never know what is going to happen but as things develop and become more important, you always have the hope of retiring here. I had the goal of being a success at Barca when I arrived and until I did that I was not satisfied".
“There were difficult moments when I was happy to play 10 minutes here rather than more time in another team, and that has allowed me to achieve other things. I don’t think about life after retirement, but I know that one way or another I will continue to be linked to football. Of course [I want to stay linked to Barca], but the future will decide. I am not in position to say I want to be one thing or another at the moment, but I would like to remain at Barca, let’s hope! However, at the moment that is something in the distance".
