Andres Iniesta picks a ridiculously good dream 4-a-side team

FBL-ESP-LIGA-BARCELONA-INIESTA

Andres Iniesta reaffirmed his commitment to Barcelona this week by signing a lifetime contract with the club.

The 33-year-old was facing a potential departure from the Nou Camp in the summer as time ticked down on his previous deal.

It remains to be seen how many seasons the World Cup winner has left in him, but it seems there will always be some place for him in Catalonia.

Barca's statement announced:

"Andres Iniesta signed a lifetime contract with FC Barcelona on Friday, in a deal that will keep him at the club for the rest of his career."

It's hard to put Iniesta's career into words. Eight La Liga titles, five Copa del Reys, and four Champions Leagues, and that's just his achievements at club level.

That's not taking into account some of the players he's lined up alongside either, such as Lionel Messi, Xavi, and Ronaldinho.

However, when asked to name his ultimate four-a-side team built up of legends of the game, he chose to go with some European greats rather than just Blaugrana veterans - although two of his picks did have spells with Barca.

GK: PETER SCHMEICHEL

Iniesta picked the former Manchester United stopper "because of his saves, because of his strength, because of everything in general." Can't argue with that.

DEF: PAOLO MALDINI

"If I have to make a tackle then I have already made a mistake": one of the AC Milan legend's most famous quotes and one that sums up his ability perfectly.

MID: MICHAEL LAUDRUP

"He was one of my idols so it would have been incredible to play with him, even though it probably would have been for just a short time," Iniesta explained.

"He was my idol because of his playing style."

FWD: RONALDO

Who else? The Brazilian is arguably the best number nine of all time. Il Fenomeno only trails Pele as his country's all-time leading goalscorer, netting 62 goals in 98 matches.
