Vissel Kobe midfielder Andres Iniesta: Strange facing Barcelona

Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta admits it was "strange" facing his old team in Japan.

Iniesta's Vissel Kobe faced Barcelona on Saturday and despite losing 2-0, the midfielder was glad that he had the chance to go up against his former club.

Vissel Kobe had a few chances throughout the game but ultimately a brace from youngster Carles Perez sealed the win for the Blaugrana.

"It's been strange facing them and not [having them] as teammates," Iniesta said about the Barcelona players.

"I enjoyed it and savoured it. Generally speaking, I don't think we were that bad. It's been a special day. I'm happy."
