The attacking midfielder wants the Blaugrana boss to stay put, and urged his team-mates to keep picking up three points and hope Madrid stumble in the title raceBarcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has made it clear that he wants coach Pep Guardiola to stay on at the helm of the current world club champions.
Lionel Messi had previously stated that the entire team wants the successful trainer to remain at Camp Nou, and Iniesta has now joined his colleagues in persuading Guardiola to extend his expiring contract.
"I hope that he renews and that he stays with us for a long time. He has to decide and he knows that the team wants him to stay. That’s everyone’s wish. Guardiola is eager. We have a lot of beautiful things still yet to see," Iniesta was quoted as saying on the club's official website.
The midfielder then went on to discuss his side's 5-1 La Liga win over Valencia on Sunday, and stressed that they should always perform like they did against los Che.
"We always try to offer up a good performance. The truth is that we have to keep on winning three points each game and hope that Real Madrid falter. The team need to play like this to aspire to the three titles."
Barcelona currently sit second in La Liga with 51 points from 23 games, 10 points behind Madrid.
