Iniesta: Barcelona deserved better, but we will be back

The attacking midfielder has insisted that their Champions League elimination does not mean the end of an era, and feels the semi-final exit to Chelsea was unfair
Andres Iniesta believes that Barcelona's Champions League elimination was "unjust", and insisted that their 3-2 aggregate loss against Chelsea does not mark the end of their successful cycle.

After being beaten 1-0 in the first leg of the semi-final tie, the Blaugrana were held to a 2-2 draw at Camp Nou in the return match, and the attacking midfielder expressed his disappointment with the outcome.

"Football has been unjust in this tie. That's just the way it is. We once again dominated the match, but little things can be decisive in football," Iniesta stated to Barca TV.

"Barcelona will be back, though. We play football because we love what we do, and we do it for those who always support us and suffer as much as we do."
