I didn’t want to join Barca – Iniesta

Iniesta



Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta has confessed he had to be persuaded by his father to join the club as a child.

The one-club star has won eight La Liga titles, four Champions League crowns and a host of other trophies during a stellar career at the Nou Camp.

The midfielder though was just 12 when he was forced to uproot himself from his family in Albacete for Barcelona.



Thinking back to those early years, the player has admitted that leaving his home was extremely tough at such a young age and only strong words from his father convinced him he was making the right choice.

Speaking to beIN Sports, Iniesta said,  “The first response was that I did not want to come because I put my family bond before going to a place so far away and without them.

“The passage of the weeks and talk with my father made me see it as a challenge.

“With my father I have a lot of confidence, a lot of affinity and I know that when he tells me things, he usually succeeds.

“I respect my father and I knew I had to take the plunge. After that, it was the worst months of my life as a person, but with the help of everyone, day by day, it was much better.”


At 32 years of age, the player is now entering the final phase of his career and he will have high hopes of ending the 2016/17 season with more silverware with Barcelona firmly in the hunt for more glory in both La Liga and the Champions League.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
