Stoichkov for Iniesta: Eternal, it is still number eighth

Bulgarian legend Hristo Stoichkov commented on the decision of Andres Iniesta to leave Barcelona and was very kind to the current eight of the Catalans. The Spanish maestro will play in China next season and Itso talks about Don Andres in an interview with Colombian Radio Caracol.

“The eighth is an eighth. No end. All other numbers have an end, but not an eight. It is eternal, just like Iniesta, “Itso said, referring to the similarity of 8 with the symbol of infinity. During almost all of his career, Kama also played with an eight on the back, with some minor exceptions.

Stoichkov also took up another very popular topic about Iniesta – that he never won the Golden Ball. The Bulgarian, who came to the 1994 award, said that if France Football decided to award Andres with an extraordinary prize, he would definitely vote for him.

The former coach of Bulgaria said a few words about the Colombian tie in Barca, predicting a great future for the newly-recruited local defender Jeri Mina.

For the final, Stoichkov highlighted his favorites for World Cup 2018 in Russia, including Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, as well as Germany, Spain and France.
