It does not be necessary to encourage too much for rememorar that "the leader am I" that the Asturian soltó in his arrival to the bench of the FC Barcelona does a decade, still with players like Leo Messi, Andrés Iniesta or Xavi Hernández in that team. Precisely the last of this list of examples has been 'protagonist' of another statement of the ex míster Barcelona, the one who this Tuesday did not doubt in autoproclamarse like better representative of the style Barça that the egarense.
