Former Spain international legend Andres Iniesta has admitted that he desires to finish his football career in Japan with J.League's Vissel Kobe.
Following recent rumours that clubs in the Major League were keen on his services, Iniesta was quoted by Marca stating that he will not be leaving the club and prefers to see through the rest of his contract with his current club.
“Will I retire here? I hope so. I’ve got two years left on my contract and I don’t know if I will have the strength to continue (beyond that). We’ll see,” Iniesta told Marca.
“I like the league that I’m in, I still feel like a footballer and I want to improve. Let’s hope (I’m in Japan) for many years, but there will be a day that it will have to come to an end.”
The legend who has been dubbed as one the world's greatest midfielders inspired Vissel Kobe to the Emperor's Cup, the side's first major title early in January 2019.
Kobe went on to win the Asian Champions League and it comes at no surprise that Iniesta would opt to remain at the club that he has enjoyed success with.
