Andres Iniesta Played Against FC Barcelona Today And It Was Really Weird

For the first time ever, Andres Iniesta played against FC Barcelona as opposed to turning out for his beloved club today and it was really, really weird.

He made the move to Japan with Vissel Kobe and made his debut in new colours in July. Seeing Iniesta playing his club football in shirt that didn't have Barca's badge on just didn't look right but an even weirder sight is the 35-year old coming up against the team he created so many special moments with.

Exactly that happened today as Iniesta skippered current employers Vissel against a Barcelona side featuring many of his long-time teammates in the Rakuten Cup fixture.

A brace from 21-year old Barca forward Carles Perez gave the Catalan outfit a 2-0 win in what was a "very special" day for Iniesta.

Prior to the game he and fellow former Barca stars David Villa and Sergi Samper, who followed him to Vissel, reunited with old friends.

Iniesta then couldn't help but watch Barca's training session as a spectator and even he must have felt a bit strange lining up on the opposite today.

The World Cup winner will soon be joined by another one of his former Barca colleagues at Vissel after they confirmed the signing of Belgium defender Thomas Vermaelen.
