Iniesta has managed to create a formidable partnership in the heart of Barcelona's midfield with Xavi. He managed 11 assists and 8 goals last season.
The greatest moment of Inieta's career was undoubtedly the goal that won Spain the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Coming deep it into extra time, Iniesta received the ball from Cesc Fabgreas, took a touch before hammering the ball past a despairing Stekelenburg.
Iniesta was named the 'Best Player' of the 2011-2012 UEFA Champions League. He relies on exceptional passing, intuition and inventiveness to control the midfield and dictate the flow of play. Iniesta has managed a total of 468 competitive for Barcelona, along with 46 goals.
Following Spains victory in the UEFA Euro 2012, Iniesta was selected as Player of the Tournament. He went on to win UEFA Best Player in Europe.
