Sergio Ramos: 'Iniesta is the boyfriend that every mother wants for her daughter'
- In 2015, the Real Madrid star praised his Barcelona counterpart.
- He even lamented that the midfield maestro was playing for the Catalan giants, not Los Blancos.
Back in 2015, Sergio Ramos went poetical while describing his Spain national team partner and club's biggest rival, Andres Iniesta. He said, as quoted by Daily Mirror: "Iniesta is the boyfriend that every mother wants. The figures over his career tell you all you need to know. He is a magical player."
Ramos even lamented that the legendary midfielder was plying his trade for Barcelona instead of Real Madrid. He added: "There are few players in the world that can compare to him, but unfortunately he is not with us at Real Madrid."
Well, Iniesta is no longer at Barcelona, unfortunately. Last year he joined Vissel Kobe. Curiously, he has recently faced his former team in a friendly in Japan. On July 27, Iniesta played against the Catalans for the first time during his illustrious career. Barca won 2-0.
Iniesta left Barca in 2018. He remains the iconic figure at the Camp Nou stadium. During his Blaugrana times, he scooped 32 trophies, including 9 La Liga and 4 Champions League.
