Barcelona ace Messi: Iniesta leaving as Double winner just perfect

Barcelona ace Lionel Messi says Andres Iniesta leaves the club "in the best way" as LaLiga champions.

Barca's title was confirmed with victory at Deportivo La Coruna.

Messi, who hit a hat-trick, said: "It's a shame, like when Xavi or [Javier] Mascherano left, symbolic players for the club.

"This year it was up to Andres. [It is] a pity for us and for the club.

"He leaves in the best way, although we regret that it wasn't with the Champions League and a treble.

"It is a double that he more than deserves. I am very happy for him and we wish him the best."
