“Playing Iniesta Will Be Tough But Am Ready For Him” – Coquelin
Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin is looking forward to facing Andres Iniesta in the first leg of the last 16 of the Uefa Champions League at the Emirates stadium.
Coquelin was rested for the FA Cup clash against Hull City, which ended in a draw.
And the midfielder is relishing the chance to face Iniesta later this evening.
“He is a player I really like,” he said. “Every player they have got is almost the best in every position. Playing Iniesta is going to be tough, but I’m ready for it and I’m looking forward to it.
“Any player wants to play players at this level and I’m ready for it if I’m involved. Everyone wants to play these types of games. We are really looking forward to it.”
