Iniesta: 'Is Difficult For Barca To Create A Golden Generation Like My Time'.


Midfielder Andres Iniesta said that in the future Barca can hardly gather a force like his generation with Xavi, Busquets, Messi ...

Over the past 20 years, Barca has spawned a generation of dozens of extraordinary players. From the cradle of La Masia, young players such as Victor Valdes, Carles Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets, in turn, became the world's top stars.
 "That generation will never be repeated, but what will happen later is not worse. Generations are never the same," the Guardian quoted  Iniesta 's comments on April 17. 
Among those players, Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, Pique and Busquets all won at least one World Cup, one Euro and three Champions League titles. Xavi and Iniesta own more than one Euro. Messi has not yet succeeded with Argentina, but is the owner of six Golden Balls.

It is rare for the team to have many players coming up from the training furnace. Under Pep Guardiola, Barca even started with 11 mature players from La Masia. Iniesta is proud:
 "The use of many self-training players depends on the coach and the situation of the club, but in my opinion, the self-trained players are always good enough to play for the A team. Our generation has gone up from As a young player, team A, playing for many years and being captain, it's hard for that to happen, when Barca always requires the best players, we have been with the club all the time and we always have a plus that other players don't have. "
After leaving Barca in 2018, Iniesta came to Japan to wear Vissel Kobe. The 36-year-old midfielder is still in contract until 2021. He said:
 "I try to extend my career for as long as possible, because I want to play football. That makes me happy. At the end of my career, I "I want to go back to Barca. It will depend on the role that I will take on, the situation of the club, the leadership."
