France Football apologises to Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta

France Football has apologised to Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta.

The magazine has said sorry to Iniesta for never awarding him the Ballon d'Or.

Editor Pascal Ferre penned an editorial opinion piece entitled 'Forgive Us Andres', in which they said sorry for the "democratic anomaly".

"Iniesta has proven that the brain is definitely the most important thing when it comes to champions," Ferre wrote.

It should be remembered that he was close to winning the award after the World Cup in 2010, when he scored the winner in the final, but finished second in the voting behind Lionel Messi and in front of Xavi Hernandez.
