Iniesta admitted when the Barcelona group sacked to Valverde that the club did not act of the best possible way. The one of Albacete insisted in this, but added also that it does not pretend to give him a touch of attention to his team. "The one who knows me knows that it would be very difficult that I criticise the form to do the things or no of the Barcelona. What I create is that the forms were not the correct, even Bartomeu recognised it. Say that they were ugly only went only a form to say it", recognised.

The manchego visited the Ciutat Esportiva just in the last training that directed the 'Txingurri'. Although it said that it was not the best day to go to see to his ex mates and to the extremeño, also ensured that share time with them was something special for him after so much time.

It was not the best day to go, but at the end see to the míster and to your mates and to all the people that is here, never is bad moment", admitted.

"I have spoken with him some time. It does time already had sounded to train to the Barcelona. I think that it is a trainer, and all the world coincides in this, that has a form to understand and to see the football with a lot of possession, and that likes him play well, touching and to the attack. I create, and expect, that can have a big stage", concluded.
