Winning the triumphant goal in the 2010 World Cup final encouraged him to bounce back from despair and move away from the most painful period in his career, claimed Andres Iniesta.
“I had to suffer many misfortunes in a row, sadly, even if I was very productive at the time,” Iniesta told Bild am Sonntag.
“But then my friend Dani Jarque died in August 2009, which really placed me in such a precarious position that I needed medical assistance.”
“It was the most painful time in my career, definitely. Getting the encouragement of Anna, my then girlfriend, and current wife, and of course, that of my mother was really helpful for me.”
His goal against the Netherlands was “the start of the progress,” said Iniesta.
“This period is, happily, a thing of the past,” he said.
“Time that has made me stronger and happier.”
