Departing FC Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta has officially responded to France Football's apology of failing to reward him with a Ballon d'Or title.
Iniesta, 34, will leave Barca at the end of the current season, with reports claiming he'll end his career with a lucrative move to the Far East.
While the transfer has yet to be officially confirmed, the veteran playmaker who's won 32 major titles with the Blaugrana since graduating from the club's academy in 2002 has brushed off the snub from the French publication.
The 2010 FIFA World Cup winner admits it was just an honour to share the stage with two of his fellow youth products being rewarded with the most prestigious individual honour in world football.
"I don't feel that they have to apologise," Iniesta said, as quoted by Marca. "I've been there, at those awards ceremonies, and I've really enjoyed it.
"In 2010, when we took the podium with [Lionel] Messi, Xavi and myself, it was very beautiful."It will take a lot to repeat that, having three La Masia players there."
