When Barcelona Legend Iniesta supported Real Madrid and hated Barca

5072

Barcelona legend and club captain Andres Iniesta used to support Real Madrid when he was a kid. Although Iniesta was an Albacete fan and his second favorite team were Barcelona,after the Catalan giants handed Albacete a 7-1 thrashing, Iniesta started hating Barcelona and started supporting Real Madrid instead. Iniesta was 6 years old then and this new found love for Real only increased when his favorite player Michael Laudrup moved to Real from Barcelona.

Of course,later the La Masia scouts spotted Iniesta and the wonderkid who would later score Spain’s world cup winning goal joined the Barcelona academy. Now, leading the club in one of its most successful eras, Iniesta is a proud Cule who will walk onto to the pitch against Madrid this weekend with only victory on his mind.

This edition of the Clasico will probably be a low key affair than usual because of Barcelona’s enormous lead in the league. But for Real’s manager Zinedine Zidane, it will be his first clasico after he took over from Rafa Benitez. A victory for him will boost confidence which will help Real in the Champions League in which they have a decent chance of winning after being handed an easy tie in the quarterfinals.
