Andres Iniesta claims that Barcelona are the 'perfect' club for him.

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta believes that he wouldn't be the same player if he were not at the Catalan club.

The 28-year-old, widely regarded as one of the best midfield players in the world, came through the club's youth academy before establishing himself in the first team.

"I don't know if I would be the same player that I am today if I had played somewhere else, I don't know if I would be better or worse," he told Barca Magazine.

"I have been and continue to be in the ideal club to grow as a player. Barcelona are the reason why I am the player that I am today. I have no doubt.

"It's important to believe in a style of play, in a player profile, but it always has to be married to success. We can't forget that without succeeding, the story is different."

Iniesta has made 415 appearances for Barcelona.
