first_imgThe unexpected hero, Andrés Iniesta’s official documentary that will be released in Rakuten TV this spring, it has the seal in the construction of the story of the journalist Marcos López (El Periódico de Catalunya and Cadena SER). ACE Chat with him and discover some secrets.What will the first official Iniesta documentary include?This was an old idea that Andres had. When we wrote his biography with Ramón Besa The play of my life and he was spinning this. Then I played at Barça, I was a captain and everything was more complex. Now, after a process of almost a year and a half, it has been possible to do so. And, with all due respect, we couldn’t make a normal documentary. The character forces a lot, you always have the feeling that everything is told and it is not. The focus is on him, but at the same time in everything around him. His mother, who had hardly appeared in the media, goes out and tells very powerful things. The goal of Stamford Bridge is told this time by Peter Cech. From behind. We have surprised Andrés and we hope to surprise people.Define this job.It is the story of a boy from Fuentealbilla who makes a trip to Kobe (Japan), the story of a normal person who does extraordinary things … It is more a human story than that of a player. What margin of possibilities did he have to play in Barcelona or in the National Team and score the World Cup goal? That’s why the unexpected hero.How has Iniesta followed the creation process?He is very excited. It has been very, very pending. We did one thing and in ten seconds responded. Sometimes he has seen raw interviews, other edits … And with the director he has very good chemistry. I jokingly told the two that they were the two directors.Any red line? Will the depression you confessed be treated?Absolute freedom. We have done what we had thought. Depression is treated to the point that he, his wife, his parents, classmates like Xavi or Piqué or coaches like Guardiola speak it. Pep helped him a lot. The psychologist also appears for the first time. All this will surprise you by how he lives it, but also by how those around him live it when they begin to discover that Andrés is changing … It is one of the moments that I like the most because the hero’s cape is blurred.What testimonies or definitions stand out from the documentary?I like what his mother and his wife tell. In football, I stay with Cech, Xavi and Eto’o. Messi talks about the ease with which he plays football. And Messi says so. Luis Enrique called him Harry Potter in training. Buffon defines him as an illusionist. For me Iniesta is one of the chosen ones. There will be unpublished content too …Yes, especially when the signing with Vissel Kobe is forged, the meeting with Mikitani … And then there will be the time to remember Dani Jarque with the story of the shirt he prepares and nobody sees. Very powerful.Does the withdrawal appear?Well … There is an answer that suggests how hard it will be. It is preparing. He has been playing football since he was seven years old. It is his life.Will Iniesta come back to Barcelona to sit on the bench?He is now very integrated in Japan, very happy and enjoying football in another way. Now it’s about the pure game. In Barça you have a lot of pressure and being captain more responsibility. Returning as Xavi’s second was a joke he made. I don’t know if he will coach, but he says he wants to be. Sooner or later he will return. That talent and knowledge of the club must be taken advantage of. Where? I dont know. Anywhere.Did you enjoy the jump into the audiovisual world?Yes. Working with director Oriol Bosch and screenwriter Pep Bras has been fantastic. When you write you depend on yourself, but here are so many elements … I spent two days in the assembly and did not last two minutes (Laughs). And I’ve seen the documentary once and I don’t want to see it anymore. I always believe that something is missing or can be improved. You are making a documentary by Andrés Iniesta. It can’t fail. It has to be up to it.Iniesta from the human prism.The unexpected hero, original idea of ​​Sports & Life and produced by El Barrio Producciones (Jordi Évole and Ramón Lara), will tell Andrés Iniesta’s trip from Fuentealbilla to Kobe (Japan) and will show the human face of the player through the testimony of those who know him best.
