Iniesta came on as a substitute for Ousmane Dembélé as Barça beat Athletic Club. The 33-year-old has admitted that he could leave the club for China.

Andrés Iniesta, the captain of Barcelona, assumed his place on the pitch in the 64th minute of Barca's 2-0 victory over Athletic Club. Ousmane Dembélé was the player to make way.

'Stay, Iniesta'

While Lionel Messi took the captain's armband off his own arm and placed it on Iniesta's, Camp Nou chanted: "We love you, stay Iniesta".

The 33-year-old admitted that he has the option to join a Chinese club, and stated after Barça's defeat of Chelsea in the Champions League that he has to make a decision by the end of April.

'Barcelona without Iniesta would be strange,' said Ernesto Valverde on Friday. Camp Nou has made its preference very clear.
