Barcelona star Iniesta rescues Albacete with £230,000 cash injection

Barcelona star Andres Iniesta has come to the rescue of Albacete.

The Sun says he stumped up £230,000 to save third-tier Spanish club Albacete from another relegation.

Barcelona's midfield superstar, 29, stepped in to settle an outstanding wage bill just before yesterday's noon deadline.

Iniesta, who started his career at Albacete, is the club's largest shareholder and rescued them in 2011 with a £400,000 donation.
