Barcelona great Iniesta: I didn't go to Japan to retire

Barcelona great Andres Iniesta insists he didn't go to Japan to retire.

The midfielder moved to Vissel Kobe last year.

But he insists that he doesn't see his current venture as a step towards retirement due to the competitive nature of the league.

"It's not a place to retire to," he said.

"The requirement is still quite high."
