Andres Iniesta has agreed that Barcelona will be able to reproduce his gold generation, yet he does not see why future teams cannot replicate their success.
Midfielder Iniesta is one of the world-class stars who quickly came through the renowned La Masia Academy, Lionel Messi, Xavi, Carlos Poole, Gerard Pike and Sergio Busquets also made the grade.
It was a huge success for Blagrana, who won the Champions League four times in nine years and dominated locally.
Although the season was closed due to the coronavirus epidemic, they were at the top of La Liga, who did not match the brilliance of those who followed Iniesta et al from the academy.
With the club recognizing that there will never be a cluster of graduates like the group that came with it, Iniesta still believes Barcelona can win the title.
“In an interview to The Guardian, Iniesta said,” That generation will never be repeated but there is no need for it to get worse afterwards in terms of how the club fares. “

“I saw Poole go, Vector [Valdes] Go on, and then Xavi is gone … you concentrate on your day-to-day, you still have great teams around you, top players.
After more than 50৫০ appearances for the Iniesta club, he became the only club to play in Barcelona in 2018.
The 6-year-old is still playing for JC League Weasel Cobb but he reiterates that one day he wants to return to Camp Nou with some ability.
“At this point, I’m trying to extend my playing career as best I can, kicking a ball as much as possible because that makes me happy,” he adds.
“I signed a contract until next year, 2020, but I’m seeing things at the end of each season and I’m feeling good. I want to play and we’re glad to be here.
“When it is [his career] In the end, I’ve always said that I would love to go back to Bar্সa. How does it all depend? In what role? How about Who’s in this club? Some way off. But with everything I’ve felt there, all the feelings I have, I want to go back. “
