Espanyol Fans Set To Give Barca’s Iniesta Warm Welcome After Dani Jarque World Cup Tribute

Andres Iniesta may be readying himself to turn out at the home of Espanyol, his Barcelona side’s fierce city rivals, but Saturday evening’s match promises to be a fixture to remember for the midfielder, who is to be recipient of a standing applause from the home supporters.

When Iniesta scored his World Cup winning goal, he lifted his Spain shirt off to reveal a message in tribute to late Periquitos captain Dani Jarque, who tragically died during their pre-season campaign almost exactly a year previously. Jarque was a player close to the hearts of the Espanyol fans, and they are set to show their respect for Iniesta’s show of solidarity with one of their own.
