In Messi's absence, Barça need to step up, says Andrés Iniesta
The blaugrana midfielder wishes his teammate a speedy recovery and insists that teamwork is what wins titles
AndrésIniesta knows his words carry a lot of weight.
That’s why, on the day of the presentation of his new book, the FC Barcelona captain took the time to respond to questions from journalists regarding not just the team’s most recent performance, but also its injured superstar, Lionel Messi.
“With Messi out we have to step up,” Iniesta said. “Championships are won by teams.”
Nevertheless, Iniesta — and everyone else in the Barça universe — knows full well that Messi is irreplaceable.
“We hope he recovers properly and as quickly as possible,” he said.
