At the age of 32, Andres Iniesta must know his Barcelona career is coming to an end.
The Spanish playmaker has had an incredible career at Camp Nou, playing over 600 times for the Catalan club.
But it looks as though Iniesta may not be able to add to that tally in the coming weeks or months. That’s because he was stretchered off against Valencia this afternoon with a nasty looking injury.
Iniesta went to ground after a tackle with Enzo Perez and immediately signalled to the bench clutching his knee.
If that wasn’t enough to prove how serious it was, Iniesta was then seen crying on the stretcher.
Take a look at the video below:
Barcelona boss Luis Enrique was enraged on the touchline after referee Undiano Mallenco decided not to punish Perez for his tackle but it look as though the Valencia player got a bit on the ball.
Iniesta’s injury aside, it was a very entertaining match at the Mestalla Stadium. Lionel Messi scored his fourth goal in as many days to put the away side ahead.
However, within four second-half minutes, Valencia were 2-1 ahead after goals from Munir El Haddadi and Rodrigo. However, Barcelona levelled the scores when Luis Suarez struck with half an hour remaining.
However, despite not being to play upon Iniesta, Barcelona forced the winner in stoppage-time after Messi was brought down in the penalty box. The Argentine stepped up to win the game in dramatic circumstances.
We just hope the injury to Iniesta isn’t quite as serious as it looked at first look.
