New Barca B coach Rafa Marquez unearths another gem who reminds him of Iniesta

Former Barcelona defender Rafa Marquez was appointed as the manager of Barca Atletic this summer and he’s already found a player who reminds him of the legendary Andreas Iniesta.

He [Aleix Garrido] is very intelligent, he reminds me a lot of Iniesta,” Barca Atletic manager Rafa Marquez told Sport.

Garrido is currently the skipper of Barca Atletic and is noted for his dribbling and passing.

This season, the 18-year-old midfielder has already registered 4 assists in just two games in the UEFA Youth League. He’s also claimed an assist in the Spanish third tier where Barca B play.

Pedri has often been compared to Iniesta but Garrido is another Spanish talent with the same profile.
