My country built a team around him.

We won a Euro and a world cup.

Good thing this award hardly carries any weight compared to FIFA's Ballon D'or. This UEFA throphy has proven to be a joke.

Stop sucking up to Messi and Ronaldo so much. Iniesta is an excellent team player, indeed, he controls the game and makes amazing plays. Also, it's good to see other players to win it aside from Messi and Ronaldo.

Iniesta is a superstar, he's no complimentary player. Barcelona is just so stacked you might not notice. He's the Dwyane Wade (not the current shell of himself Wade) to Messi's Lebron. Xavi's like also having CP3 on the team. In fact when Lebron and Bosh signed with Miami I immediately thought of Barcelona at the time.

Iniesta is a great player. He's a midfielder, not a striker. A lot of newer football fans mostly take note of strikers because they're the ones who score goals the most and are easier to notice so that's why players like Iniesta, Xavi and Pirlo maybe overlooked by some football fans when they're 3 of the best players in football.

I'm not disregarding Midfielders...I like players like Ozil.
