The 36-year-old is regarded as one of the greatest midfielders to come out of Spain, but it was no surprise to see his top five list with a few Barcelona players.

"There are many good midfielders in LaLiga, but for me the best are 'Busi' (Sergio Busquets), (Ivan) Rakitic, the new boys such as Arthur or (Frenkie) De Jong, and I'll also say the legend that is Santi Cazorla," Iniesta told LaLigaTV.

The 2010 World Cup winner has also shed some light on the Lionel Messi's recent failures in the UEFA Champions League.

"I have that feeling that, in terms of Barca, having had Leo for so long... it's four Champions League won," Iniesta told Argentine sports paper Ole.

"But with the team that we had and with Leo there, surely with Barcelona we should have been able to win at least one more."
