Neymar 'fell in love' with Barcelona icon Iniesta's football

Neymar lauds Barcelona and Spain Andres Iniesta

London, April 28: Neymar says he "fell in love" with Andres Iniesta's football ability after joining the Spanish football icon at Barcelona.

Iniesta confirmed on Friday that this will be his last season at Barca, with the captain set to lead the Catalan giants to another domestic double.

The Chinese Super League has been mooted as the most likely destination for Iniesta and his former Barcelona team-mate Neymar was among those to pay tribute to the midfield genius.

"Maestro, an honour to be part of his career in Barcelona," Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar wrote on Instagram.

"I already admired you from afar and after I came to be closer I fell in love with his football and more for the person that you are out of the field.

"I will always tell my friends, children and family that I had the pleasure of celebrating goals and titles at his side.

"Barcelona thanks you, I thank you and soccer lovers thank you for everything you did!!! Lots of luck on your walk always, hug CAPI Andres Iniesta."

Neymar won two LaLiga titles, three Copa del Rey crowns and the 2014-15 Champions League with Iniesta at Barcelona before joining PSG in a world-record move.
