I'd Prefer Spain to Win Than To Be MVP - Iniesta

Andres Iniesta has claimed that he has not been the best player at Euro 2012, as Spain prepare to lock horns with Italy in the final on Sunday.

"I never thought about playing for personal credit,” the 28-year-old told reporters at a press conference.

“I do not think I am the MVP. I feel that what will make me happy is to lift the trophy.

“In football everything is relative; it does not matter who stars and who does not. [Claudio] Marchisio has had a good tournament, [Andrea] Pirlo also.

“I do not know [who the MVP should be] and I really do not care.”

"I congratulated him yesterday when I heard the news; he is a great reinforcement," he added. “I know him well from the national team, he is a fast player who makes good decisions; he is a great signing,” Iniesta concluded.

The attacker is expected to start for Vicente del Bosque’s side against Italy in Sunday’s Euro 2012 final.
