Andres Iniesta doesn't want any of the limelight during Spain's campaign at the European Championship.
He might not have a say in the matter, however.
Iniesta leads the defending champions into their Group C opener against Italy at the PGE Arena in Gdansk on Sunday in better playing shape than any of his previous major championship appearances.
But the Barcelona visionary, whose extra-time goal earned Spain its first World Cup in 2010, is quick to dismiss his place in the team hierarchy before his 65th appearance for Spain, preferring a hardworking role in a team punctuated with stars.
Iniesta just wants to perform his role, saying ''I've never considered myself any type of leader.''
