Aged 32, Blaugrana Andrés Iniesta is in one of the best moments of his sporting career. After an excellent season as one of Barça's midfielders, the Blaugrana captain maintains his level in the Euros, in which he was voted as best player in the two games he played for Spain.

The player from Castilla-La-Mancha talked to the newspaper Sport about his current situations and about two names linked with Barça. The first one is Gerard Piqué, dressing room teammate in club and in the national team. The second, Pep Guardiola, who will start a new adventure this summer on the Manchester City bench. Here are the main statements from Iniesta:

Blaugrana future?

"As a player there is no doubt, when I finish my career we'll see what happens. Obviously I spent my whole life at Barça, it is my second home. I still have years left as a player and right now I'm not thinking about becoming a coach, I don't see myself in that position today. What I'm sure about is that I want to stay in the world of football because it is my life."

Gerard Piqué and the National team

"It's great news that they stopped booing him. Unfortunately he was in the news for something that he didn't want to happen, but Piqué's weight in Barça and in Spain is amazing. I'm glad everything has calmed down and that he's playing at this level, which is very high."

Guardiola and Manchester City

"He will try new things, I've seen him as a coach, I know how he is, Manchester City have a great coach, one of the best in the world. They will be candidates to win every title."

"Sometimes we talk, I've learned a lot in every way. He's been a reference since I was little I'll always wish him the best, in everything that he does."
