Andoni Zubizarreta labelled Andres Iniesta a "magician" after the midfielder's display in Barcelona's win over Getafe.

The midfielder set up the opening goal for Alexis Sanchez after just six minutes, and also scored himself in the 90th minute of a match the Blaugrana controlled from start to finish.

The win moves Barca 16 points clear of arch-rivals Real Madrid and Zubizarreta added that he had never spoken with president Sandro Rosell about the prospect of signing a Blancos player, following his revelation that he was admirer of one of Jose Mourinho's players.

"I speak very little with him [Rosell] about players, and never about Real Madrid players. Only when we play against them. They have a great squad and the Castilla as well," he explained.

The former goalkeeper then revealed he will paying a visit to coach Tito Vilanova as he continues his recovery from a cancer relapse.

"I'm going to see him [Tito] in person and we will talk about football, as we usually do when we are together, and so I can touch him and see him. We all also discuss the future."
