Making the case for Iniesta

Sulmaan Ahmad of examines Eto'o statement that Iniesta and not Messi is the best player in the world and concludes:

"Many of the above are naturally gifted in ways Iniesta never will be - they will hit their heights and surpass the little Barca boy - but they will also have their weaker moments; and at present, Iniesta has a cast-iron case to be in contention for the Ballon d'Or, with only his other pale, shy and awkward-looking team-mate standing in his way.

The shame of the game is that he's unlikely to make the list because he hasn't been anointed as any kind of 'special one' by the mass media - his hype hasn't and probably never will spin out of all control and reason - and is thus he is a lot more likely to continue his incredible work in relative obscurity. Maybe it's for the better." (Source)
