Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta admits he's been uncomfortable sitting on the bench this season.

Iniesta has been named to the starting line-up on nine occasions this season, he's come off the bench three times and on two occasions he didn't get the nod to play.

"You never know the displeasure or the luck of being on the bench at any given moment, but it's true that it's not a normal situation [for me]," he said.
