football-bromances

Everywhere I go, people talk to me about Andrés. Wherever you are: ‘Iniesta, wow…’ People say to me: 'That midfield with you and Iniesta. My God, what a midfield!’ I’m proud that everyone associates me with him. I like the fact that people always say to me: 'Xavi-Iniesta, Xavi-Iniesta, Xavi-Iniesta.’ There was a TV programme that did a report on us together. It’s as if we were one, a single entity. Actually, we are. I’m proud of that. We’ve gone from people saying that we couldn’t play together to being the same person. People even get us mixed up sometimes. 'Eh, Iniesta…’ and I say: 'No, Iniesta is the other one. The one who can dribble, the one with the change of pace.’ They see us as a couple, two players as one.

A week later, we won the Cup there too, against Athletic. I wanted to share that moment with Andrés. 
‘Come with me, Andriu!’
‘Where?’
‘Up there, to get the cup. I want you to lift it with me.’
'What are you talking about, maqui?’
'Come on. Both of us together.’
And he came in the end. It was the way I wanted it; he deserved it.
