Good Guy Iniesta Saves Former Club from Relegation

World Cup champion, Euro Cup Winner, La Liga steamroller: Iniesta’s resume was impressive enough, and then this happens.

According to reports from Spanish newspaper Marca, the Barcelona man recently found that his boyhood club, Albacete, were on the verge of administration and automatic relegation after being unable to pay player salaries.

Iniesta’s immediate response? Hand the club €240,000 to cover their expenses.

While that amount might be a drop in the bucket for a player like Iniesta, this isn’t the only time he’s supported his local side. Iniesta’s winery (yes, he owns a winery), the aptly named Bodega Iniesta, is Albacete’s current sponsor.

Here’s to Iniesta; just as good off the pitch as on.
