Barcelona, May 3 (IANS) Barcelona’s captain and Spanish football star Andres Iniesta trained on Thursday for the 38th Clasico of his career with the Catalan club, and possibly his last after his recent announcement that he would be leaving at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old Iniesta came through the ranks and has been playing with Barcelona since 1996, a 22-year career that has seen him become one of Spain’s most legendary midfielders, reported Efe.

“Out on the field at Camp Nou Andres, Iniesta could make his final appearance in a Clasico after 37 previous appearances in the fixture, 25 of which have come in La Liga,” the club said in a statement on its website.

Barcelona is to face off against its main rival Real Madrid on Sunday.
