Iniesta: I had nothing to do with Barcelona shirt prank on Arsenal captain Cesc

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta says he had nothing to do with the shirt prank pulled on Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

Fabregas was pictured in a Barcelona shirt following a practical joke by several of his team-mates at Spain's celebrations in Madrid on Monday.

Barca defenders Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique were the instigators, forcing the shirt over their Spain team-mate's head with the collaboration of Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.

The mild-mannered Iniesta, though, says he had nothing to do with the prank.

"It wasn't anything to do with me - it was the other two (Puyol and Pique) who carried out the joke," he said.

"He is my team-mate and my friend and I wish him the best, and if he comes, we will all be delighted."
