Iniesta says he will be fit for Rome final
Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta is confident he will be fit for the
Champions League final against Manchester United after tests today showed no
long-term damage to his right thigh.
But the 25-year-old is optimistic he will be fit to line up against Sir Alex Ferguson's side on May 27.
He underwent tests on the injury today, after which he told Sport newspaper: "I will be in Rome.
"It is a small tear that wasn't as bad as we thought.
"From here until the final I will only think about Rome.
"The desire that I have to play in this final is going to help (my recovery) a lot."
Barcelona's official website was also positive on Iniesta's recovery period after confirming the Spain international has a "two-centimetre tear in the muscle in his right thigh".
