Having just returned from a three-week absence due to a hamstring injury, the Spain international was welcomed back with some controversial praise from South America

Chile coach Claudio Borghi has compared Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta to an 'erotic dream'.

The Spain international has just returned to training for Barcelona after suffering a hamstring injury, and Borghi seemingly can't wait for Iniesta to take to the field once again.

"Iniesta is like an erotic dream... when he plays you just want it to go on for a little longer, you don't want it to stop." Borghi is quoted as saying by Sport.

However, the boss has more pressing matters as hand, as his charges prepare to face Iniesta's team-mate and fellow countryman Lionel Messi on Friday when Chile take on Argentina as part of the South American World Cup qualifiers.

Speaking of the Barcelona wizard, the coach said he would not get his defenders to focus solely upon him during their crucial clash.

"We do not want to kill Messi, I would like to enjoy his play as I am football-minded," he explained.

"We will mark him [Messi] depending on where he plays, but I will not force anyone to go man to man on him."

Chile face Peru four days after their encounter with Alejandro Sabella's men.
