thumbnail Hello,

The attacking midfielder revealed that he wants to be remembered for his commitment to the club, and once again stressed that he hopes Pep Guardiola will stay with the Catalans

Spain international Andres Iniesta has stressed that he is committed to Barcelona, and wants to be remembered as a player who is "completely devoted" to the Blaugrana once he hangs up his boots.

The 27-year-old received the Barcelona Fair Play Award for the 2010-11 campaign on Monday evening, and Iniesta was quick to thank the club for everything it has done for him.

"I want people to see me in a few years like they see me now. I want to be remembered as a player who is completely devoted to the club," Iniesta said to reporters.

"I am very grateful for everything the club has offered me. Barca and Catalunya have given us everything. I do not want to be remembered for the titles I won, but for my personality."

The midfielder then briefly discussed the future of Pep Guardiola, and again stated that he hopes the coach will stay at Barcelona.

"I hope that the moment of his renewal will come. Everybody wants him to stay. There is not much more to say about it."

Barcelona resume La Liga action on Saturday evening when they take on Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
