There is a saying that one cannot teach old dogs new tricks. There is also a saying that there is always an exception present that proves any a given rule. The switch of Andrés Iniesta to Japan and his transformed into Lionel Messi has seems relevant to above mentioned comments.
Iniesta is the former legend of Barcelona. He left the only club had known till this summer to join the team of Japanese Vissel Kobe, which is famous for having an attacking end. However, his performance on the ground has not been the same as his dribbles, movement and passes that have consistently been going on over the years. At the present time, Iniesta has probably curiously failed to make the number of goals that one might predict from a good and advanced midfielder who is playing for one of the most successful attacking team in history.
When he was around 14 years old as a regular starter for Barça, the average goal of Iniesta is just 2.4 goals every season in the league play. During that stretch, he ended more seasons of La Liga knocking in zero goals (3) in comparison to those in which he scored over four (2).
Until now, “Iniesta has made only three starts for his new Japanese club, but he has scored only in two matches.“But, these goals were not the simple goals, but they were absolute stunners. Some of them were extremely smooth and silky.
Could be possible that Iniesta learned some new tricks, but in his old age, he is getting to show off his full range of tricks that he always possessed now. There are many things hidden in the pocket of Iniesta and he is going to reveal it in coming days.
