Iniesta’s vest goes on display at Espanyol stadium

The vest that Andres Iniesta wore in tribute to a deceased

player that he revealed after scoring Spain’s winning goal in the

World Cup final has gone on display at Espanyol’s stadium.

Immediately after his extra-time goal in Spain’s 1-0 win over

the Netherlands last year, Iniesta removed his jersey to show a

white cutoff shirt bearing the words: ”Dani Jarque siempre con

nosotros” (Dani Jarque always with us).

Jarque, Espanyol’s captain, collapsed and died aged 26 on a

preseason tour of Italy in August 2009.

Iniesta, who plays for Espanyol’s city rival Barcelona, was

praised throughout Spain for putting aside club rivalry to make the

gesture.

Visitors can see the vest on matchdays and tours at Cornella-El

Prat arena.
