“It started after we summer with Barça’s treble took them. I scored against Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League, red), won the Champions League, picked up three awards, it was an incredible year. And then comes the summer and you begin to feel sad and to feel. There is something wrong, but you don’t know what it is. I had some tests run but they brought nothing to light. You’ll end up in a spiral where you end up alone and with an empty feeling left behind. There was that what happened to Dani Jarque.”

That last one was the former captain of Espanyol and a good friend of Iniesta. He died on 8 August 2009 at the age of 26 of a heart attack during a training camp. His death was a hard blow to El Blanquito. In the world cup final 2010 against the Netherlands proved Iniesta his friend’s honour in a t-shirt with the message ’Dani Jarque always with us ” to show after scoring the decisive goal.

In the interview with La Sexta gives Iniesta (34) admitted that he was in his darkest moments of suicide thought. “We’re talking about very extreme conditions. I’m not saying that I wílde do or would do, but I just wasn’t myself anymore. When you are very vulnerable, it is difficult to control and to keep it. In seconds, you can make certain decisions because it is not well with you.”

Eventually climbed Iniesta out of the deep pit and he would then have nine seasons to shine at Barcelona. Last summer swapped the Spaniard in the Primera Division for the Japanese J-League. At Vissel Kobe shows Iniesta now his latest tricks.
