Iniesta Completes Move to Japanese Side Vissel Kobe

Andres Iniesta has been officially unveiled as a Vissel Kobe player, with the J-League outfit having snapped up the Barcelona legend in the wake of his departure from Camp Nou.

Having graduated out of the famed La Masia academy system in Catalunya, the 34-year-old matured into one of the most decorated players of the modern era .

He helped Barca to nine La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns during his time at Camp Nou, while also landing World Cup and European Championship honours with Spain.

A social media post on Wednesday revealed that the classy midfielder was heading to a “new home” , with Vissel Kobe now confirmed as that destination.

The club’s chairman, Hiroshi Mikitaini – who is the chief executive of Japanese electronics company Rakuten, who are Barcelona’s shirt sponsors – believes Iniesta can be “a terrific inspiration for Japanese football society” and help Vissel Kobe complete their “goal of becoming the number one club in Asia”.
