Veteran Spanish star Andres Iniesta announced on Thursday his departure from the Japanese ranks of Vissel Kobe, indicating that he will continue to play football.
Iniesta shed tears the moment he announced his departure from Vissel Kobe, but he confirmed that he did not plan to retire from football and that he would remain in the stadiums for another period, but without specifying his next destination.
Iniesta, 39, won the World Cup with Spain in 2010 and won four Champions League titles and nine La Liga titles with Barcelona.
When asked about his next destination, Iniesta replied, “I have to tell the truth… I don’t know, I want to continue playing, I feel I can continue playing, but at the end of this break we will see what options are available, I want to end my career playing matches, very proud about this.
The Spain star explained: It’s a very emotional day after many years, I tried to give my best on and off the field, and I’m very proud of that.
Iniesta left Barcelona in 2018 after many years and moved to Vissel Kobe with a three-year contract, then renewed his two-year contract with the Japanese team.
