The reason I chose this blurry picture for representation is that because, football as a game was virtually blurry to me, when I first saw @andresiniesta8
more than a decade ago. The few pals I had kept conversing about how their favourite club or favourite player is just nailing it out there, while I just enjoyed watching and playing the game contemplating as to do I have any favourite afterall!
The game is about passion, intensity and aggression to many, but somehow I never connected to the aggression part (physical, I mean). And I blame Andres Iniesta for that. I blame him for showing me that football isn't just a sweat-inducing, mud-thrashing game, but literally the most beautiful sport on the planet. His eye on the ball, fooling umpteen players to continue his run and being the ultimate playmaker showed me how old school football is still alive and as gorgeous as ever.
Modern day football is a bitch, where everything and everyone is the target of criticism and hatred for even the smallest and largest of errors. But, being able to have the tag of 'Modest Maestro' is a feat only Andres Iniesta would be able to achieve.
A man of less words, the most beautiful creator one would ever see, Andres 'Infinit' Iniesta bids @fcbarcelona
goodbye, and sometimes it's harder than anything else.
That sparkle in your eye is the emotion millions of us have around right now.
Andres Iniesta Lujan, Football is Infinity, because Football is You! #Infinit8Iniesta #7heChamp10ns #FCB #Barca #AndresIniesta #Barcelona #LaLiga #ViscaElBarca #fcbarcelona
