First appearance


Andrés Iniesta Luján (born 11 May, 1984 in Fuentealbilla, Spain) is a midfielder in FC Barcelona and without a doubt the calmest of Barca's players. And that is the truth.

He has the ability to heal players with his glowing touch (resulting in Puyi refering to him as "lo puto gusiluz" or "the effing glow-worm"), and has also managed to hypnotize Ronaldo during the 2010 El Clásico.

Trivia Edit

After scoring the goal that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup for Spain, Iniesta removed his jersey to reveal a shirt with the text "Dani Jarque, always with us" - a reference to the late Espanyol team captain (and close friend of Iniesta) who died during a training camp in Italy 2009. This gesture was referenced in Crackòvia during the "Espanyol-Barcelona 1-5" game where the home crowd boo Barca's players, except for Iniesta who receives applause from the same fans.
