World Cup winner Andres Iniesta is determined to continue winning more trophies as he prepares for the new La Liga season with Barcelona.
The Spanish midfielder scored the winning goal against Holland in the World Cup final back in July to add to the nations European Championship title won against Germany in 2008.
Now the 26-year-old seems to be itching to win even more silverware as that's 'what makes me happy' in his words.
The Barca star is no stranger to trophies, with four Primera Division titles, two Champions Leagues and a Copa del Rey already on his CV.
His performances during the tournament in South Africa earned him a spot in the team of the tournament, but the midfielder says team success will drive him on.
"My personal objectives are collective objectives," he told the club's official website.
"Winning trophies is what makes me happy, it's what makes the fans happy and is all there is. Individual prizes are not important.
"Barca continuing to win things is important and what will make everyone happy."
Iniesta is now attempting to catch up with his team-mates in pre-season training ahead of this weekend's first-leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla where he is not expected to play any part.
"I am doing well and am doing everything in order to continue to find my fitness slowly but surely," he said.
"Some of my team-mates are ahead in training having been back for longer and they are in better form.
"Now I am just another squad member and it is up to the coach to decide if I play."
