There are many footballers who are big fans of Andrés Iniesta, but very few have shown it as much as Claudio Marchisio. In an interview with DAZN, the Italian said that it's "inexplicable" that the Spanish player "doesn't have a Ballon d'Or".

It is not the first or the last time that Claudio Marchisio professes his love for Andrés Iniesta. In an interview for 'DAZN', the former Juventus and Zenit player once again praised the Spanish player. 

In his opinion, "it is inexplicable that Iniesta has not won the Ballon d'Or," said Marchisio, who was more graphic: "Seeing him play is like seeing Federer in tennis, always a pleasure. He has three brains, one for the right leg, one for the left and one for the head. He knows football perfectly".

Two months ago, the former midfielder spoke about his admiration. During the Liedholm Awards, he did not hide his opinion: "FC Barcelona will have Messi, but for me the best in history is Andrés Iniesta".

On his return to DAZN, Marchisio also praised Antonio Conte, coach of Inter, with whom he coincided in Delle Alpi: "He is one of the most important I have had in my career, he was very important not only for me but for everyone. He regained the spirit of Juventus after several bad years."

In addition, he referred to Cristiano Ronaldo, of whom he said he would have "liked to play with him": "Last summer, many people told me why I left when Cristiano arrived in Turin, but the truth is that life choices should not be subject to players who come and go.2

"Cristiano has raised the bar for the team," concluded Claudio Marchisio, who was once again declaring his eternal love for an Andres Iniesta who continues to play for Japan's Vissel Kobe.
