The Andrés Iniesta final |

Andrés Iniesta lifted his 31st title at Barça on Saturday. The captain scored the fourth of the game, after leaving David Soria for dead in the 50th minute. The number ‘8’ led his team in a fantastic performance that helped lift the 30th Copa del Rey in the Club’s history.

Barcelona's old guard turned on the style with Luis Suarez (two goals), Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta all on the scoresheet, as Sevilla were swept away 5-0 in Saturday evening's 2018 Copa del Rey final.

What on earth is Iniesta doing by leaving for China? | Marca

If Andres Iniesta wants to leave to go to China for money, for business or to set up his wine empire, then that's fine. He is human. However, if he is doing it because he no longer considers himself able to put up with the brutal demands of the top-level European football season then he is mistaken. He might not be fit enough for the Ironman challenge, but he has enough in the tank to play 20 or 30 matches of his exquisite football.

This is one of the two main conclusions that can be made from this weekend's Copa del Rey final. The other one is that you have to wonder what Barcelona were thinking about in Rome, because the reality is that it wasn't a contest against Sevilla.

And if it is indeed the end, it was a fitting finale. Iniesta had produced an exhibition in attacking football, gliding past rivals, linking up with pinpoint passes and even scoring an excellent goal. He always did save them for the big occasion, after all.
