Iniesta Hints At Barca Exit After Copa Dey Rey Final

Iniesta Hints At Barca Exit After Copa Dey Rey Final

Sevilla fans reacted extremely admirably, as Andres Iniesta was substituted late in the Copa Del Rey final where Barcelona cruised to a 5-0 victory. In what could well be his final cup game for Barça before he moves on at the end of the season, Iniesta was giving a standing ovation when he was subbed off - with both sets of fans joining in the applause.

The iconic Spain worldwide found the back of the net as he and his cohorts captured their 30th Copa del Rey title, and Iniesta was candid after the match about the timeline of his future plans.

Messi then got in on the action at the 31-minute mark, receiving a back-heeled pass from Jordi Alba and scoring at close range. The only other team to do it was Real Madrid from 1905-08. They have become the first team to win the titles four times in a row in eight decades.

The Spanish worldwide who spoke after the game, said he is weighing up an offer from China that would take him away from his boyhood club.

However, Iniesta has refused to reveal his decision regarding his future at the club after the Copa Del Rey final stating: "This week I will talk about the decision I will make, we still need to win La Liga and there is time to enjoy". In a few days I'll make it public and nothing more. "I think it's a little clear but we will see".

"It's a pleasure to see him play".

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta was taken off with two minutes left to play and the legendary midfielder went off amidst loud cheers and applause in what felt like an emotional final for the Barcelona man.

He will win a ninth La Liga title if Barcelona beat Deportivo La Coruna next weekend. Today the people deserved this. The decision that he takes should be respected because he deserves it. "We will miss him".
