The captain of the Barcelona renewed this Friday 'for life' with the Barcelona club. A signature expected by all the fans and very deserved, but also is delicate because it can engage the planning of the staff in a future
The FC Barcelona announced this Friday, of unexpected form -by the stop by selections-, the renewal of Andrés Iniesta. His new agreement comes to be something as well as vitalicio. That is to say, the manchego will decide when puts the full stop to his path like professional player. Something deserved by his career... But also delicate for the Barcelona club.
Few players deserve more than Iniesta a renewal like this. The '8' of the Barcelona carries all a life in the Catalan club. Since it arrived to The Farm when hardly it was a boy -having a bad time without his family- up to now has raised 30 titles and has represented to the Barça better that anybody. His football, joined to the temper of Xavi, has dazzled to the world.
Disequilibrium, verticality and important goals -as the one of that semifinal in front of Chelsea in 2009-. An only and different player. Surely anybody will be able to relieve him like such in his maximum splendour. But this renewal can condition the planning of the Barcelona staff in a future.
Iniesta already has ensured that "when it does not seat me well will say it and will change absolutely everything", but the reality is that it always costs to step backwards when the performance is not always the best. Although his start of course is remarkable, Iniesta has suffered injuries in the last years and arrives at the end of season tired. Do him rest is key.
Puyol And Xavi knew to leave it to time -the one of Terrassa changed his role in the team-. Iniesta still is importantísimo in the team of Valverde, but seems clear that remain him few years of football to the maximum level -always looking what has been able to offer lately-.
The wage, important
Desconocemos If the wage of Andrés will go going down to measure that happen the years, but the position that occupies at present in the scale salarial is important -totally deserved-, since some signings could frustrate by fault of margin in this sense. We celebrate the renewal of the '8' but fear that it can suppose difficulties to schedule the future.
