Andres Iniesta: We thought it would be impossible to win the treble again

Andres Iniesta Spain

Earning himself the Man of the Match award in Berlin, Andres Iniesta was highly influential as Barcelona claimed Champions League victory against Juventus.

Few players in football have achieved as much as Andres Iniesta has with Barcelona, the club where he started his illustrious career, after arriving as a raw but talented youngster from Albacete, then becoming one of the true greats of the modern game.

Speaking with Spanish radio network, Cadena SER, amidst the euphoric celebrations in Berlin, after his side beat Juventus to win the Champions League, Iniesta reflected: "I get goosebumps when I look back and see how fortunate I am to be at this club, and to achieve all the things I've had the opportunity to win."

Barcelona have become the first club in European football history, to win a domestic league, cup and Champions League treble, for a remarkable second time, repeating the feat they first achieved with Pep Guardiola at the helm, during the 2008-09 season.

Clearly delighted at what's a spectacular and unique achievement, Iniesta enthused: "Six years ago we thought it would be impossible to win the treble again, and now we've done it again, so we're going to celebrate with all our people, because moments like this are meant to be enjoyed."

Despite concluding an exceptional season with the treble, there remain doubts over the future of manager Luis Enrique, amidst speculation he wasn't happy with the departure of Andoni Zubizarreta, who was sacked as sports director by Barcelona earlier this year.

As far as Iniesta can see, there's absolutely no reason why the Asturian coach should leave the Camp Nou, particularly on the back of such an exceptional season, and with much more to achieve, as the 31-year-old midfield icon explained: "I hope and wish that next season, he'll be with us. Hopefully, because he hasn't ruled anything out yet and we still have plenty of challenges ahead together."

Finally and underlining clearly just how ambitious he remains, Iniesta looked beyond the triumphs achieved during the 2014-15 campaign, signalling he's still hungry for more success, highlighting: "It's been a spectacular season in every sense, and next, we'll be going for the UEFA Super Cup."
