Andres Iniesta brings his football skills to the UAE

The Barcelona midfielder will be joining Ras Al Khaimah’s Emirates Club.

Over the past few weeks, many football giants have ventured into the Middle East. Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Sadio Mane are just some of the names and now yet another icon is making his way to the Gulf. Barcelona’s midfield maestro, Andres Iniesta, is taking his footballing skills to a new field. At 39 years old, the football legend’s thirst for the game remains unquenched and he’s ready to weave his magic on UAE’s football pitches.

Iniesta is set to inject his creative brilliance into the UAE Pro League with a one-year contract. But the contract includes an option for an extension until June 2025, hinting at the possibility of witnessing his football finesse for years to come.

The news of Iniesta’s move to Ras Al Khaimah’s Emirates Club FC came as a surprise to many, especially after speculations of a potential reunion with former Barcelona teammates. However, the allure of a new challenge in the heart of the Middle East has beckoned the football virtuoso.

Iniesta’s illustrious career is studded with remarkable achievements. He made history when he scored the winning goal for Spain in the 2010 World Cup final. His pivotal role in Spain’s European Championship victories in 2008 and 2012 solidified his status as a true football hero.

As he signs the dotted line on his contract with Emirates Club, fans can anticipate a renewed display of his magical skills. As Iniesta graces the pitches of the UAE with his artistry, he reminds us that age is just a number when it comes to true footballing greatness.
