Andres Iniesta says only titles matter for Barcelona

If there’s one thing Andres Iniesta knows about, it’s winning trophies.

Over his storied career at Barcelona, Iniesta has won six La Liga titles, six Supercopa titles, and two Copa del Reys.

After advancing to the Champions League final over Bayern Munich today, Iniesta will have the chance to lift his fourth UEFA Champions League trophy on June 6th.

Barcelona lost to Bayern Munich today, but still advanced to the final on aggregate 5-3. Following the match, Iniesta said he is proud of the accomplishment, but only titles will suffice for Barca.

This year is great in all senses, we are in a final and it’s within our reach. We’re in another final, this is huge.

We don’t have to be satisfied just to make it; we have to try and win it. Titles are what matter.”

At 31-years-old and with nearly 600 appearances under his belt for Barcelona, Iniesta has won more awards than the entire history of some clubs. Should Barca raise the Champions League trophy once again come June, Iniesta and his teammate Xavi would join Clarence Seedorf as the only players to play in and win four Champions League finals, assuming both feature for Luis Enrique.

Barcelona is in good position to win La Liga (should the season go forward), faces Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final, and is now headed to Berlin for the Champions League final. With another shot at the treble looming for the Catalans, Iniesta will surely be seeing some more trophies in the near future.
