Louis van Gaal Linked the rise of Marcus Rashford

Louis van Gaal has likened the astronomic rise of Marcus Rashford into the Manchester United first-team to the progress made by players like Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez when they were young.

Van Gaal was responsible for bringing through a number of stars during his time at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. He has always had the golden touch in this regard. Iniesta, Xavi, and Bastian Schweinsteiger are some of the players who came through the ranks when van Gaal was at the Spanish and German clubs respectively.

Experienced head necessary for title run-in

With the Primera Liga season almost at an end, Barcelona's chances of retaining their crown hang in the balance.

After three consecutive defeats in April allowed the likes of Atletico Madrid and their rivals, Real Madrid, to make up serious ground on the Catalonians, Luis Enrique's men go into the final stretch of the season in the knowledge that they can't afford any more slip ups.

Andres Iniesta confident on Barcelona to Continue unbeaten Winning Streak

Andres Iniesta claims that Barcelona are very keen on extending their unbeaten run of 39 matches.

The Catalan club have become even more powerful under the regime of Luis Enrique. The former Barcelona midfielder has managed to find a way for the likes of Neymar, Luis Enrique, and Lionel Messi to play in the same team without losing the defensive strength. In fact, attack has become the biggest source of defence for Barcelona in the 2015-16 campaign. They have managed to stay unbeaten even when having some difficult games in the Champions League along the way.

Is Sergio Busquets leaving?

Pep Guardiola’s move to Manchester City will be completed when the current Premier League season ends as the Spanish manager is going to replace Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad Stadium and Sergio Busquets has recently said that he could be tempted to join the Premier League club as the highly rated defensive midfielder would like to work alongside Guardiola once again.

Another remarkable record for Iniesta

He is, and will forever be, a Barcelona icon and a man whose achievements will be discussed long after the day comes to finally hang up his boots.

He is not the headline maker, the Lionel Messi or Neymar, and for a long time he was not even the Camp Nou stalwart, the skipper and on-field leader, with the presence of Carles Puyol and Xavi casting sizeable shadows.

Andres Iniesta has categorically stated that he would never play in League

Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta has categorically stated that he would never play in the Premier League in his career.

The midfielder is regarded as one of the finest in the world, but his form with Barcelona has dropped off late. This is largely down to the importance given to players like Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. Iniesta does not occupy a major role in the tactics of Luis Enrique as he did under Pep Guardiola. This has raised suggestions that the player might consider a move to the Premier League just as other Barcelona stars like Pedro and Cesc Fabregas in recent memory.
