This doesn't look right.
Andres Iniesta officially made his debut for Vissel Kobe, last night, following his transfer from Barcelona.
He departed the iconic Camp Nou - where he won 32 major trophies - by venturing to Japan.
The legendary midfielder entered the fray as a second-half substitute, coming on in the 58th minute.
He was introduced to a raucous crowd with fans waving Spain flags.
However, Iniesta endured a miserable debut with his new side losing 3-0 at home to Shonan Bellmare. Ouch.
And judging by social media, it's going to take some time before people get used to seeing Iniesta in a Vissel Kobe shirt.
Very happy for my debut....although today's negative result. Now we will keep working and preparing for next game. Thankful with the fans and teammates! Come on Vissel Kobe! :soccer::muscle: pic.twitter.com/TiHD3mEwWS- Andrés Iniesta (@andresiniesta8) July 22, 2018

Iniesta wasn't the only player making his J-League debut over the weekend.
Fernando Torres also came off the bench to make his bow for Sagan Tosu. And just like his former international colleague, he suffered defeat on his debut losing 1-0 at home to Vegalta Sendai.
All the best in Japan, lads.
