Celebrating the launch of its new CTR360 Maestri III, Nike has tapped FC Barcelona midfielder, Spanish international and world class playmaker Andres Iniesta for a unique short film. Depicting a literal interpretation of Iniesta’s puppeteer-like control on the pitch, the film showcases the new football boot. Favored by midfielders and created to allow enhanced ball control, the cleats make use of durable Kanga-Lite synthetic material for superior touch and come with All Conditions Control technology for exceptional playability no matter the weather. Additional features like an asymmetrical lacing area, revamped 3D control pad and 360 degree stud placement across a redesigned and more responsive plate further enhance the offering. The Nike CTR360 Maestri III is now available for $200 USD while the film and an interview with Iniesta himself can both be seen below.

How does it feel to be back in training, at the start of the season with a full season of football ahead of you?
Like every season, I’m really excited and determined to do well again.

What is your ultimate goal for the season with FC Barcelona?
Once again we´ll be competing for everything and I look forward to playing to my ability, staying fit, training well and being competitive. I always try to be healthy, to enjoy my football, to enjoy training and playing – and remaining injury-free and above all to improve as a footballer year on year.

You are known as a midfield maestro. Growing up as a young footballer could you see this type of role for yourself in football, the midfield controller? How do you do it?
Well, central midfield is where I have always liked to play; it´s where I feel most involved in the game, where defense begins and attacks start, and as you develop as a player you always try to improve all aspects of your game.

How do you set the tempo of a game, so you can control and dictate what happens around you? How do you stay calm?
Everyone is different, right? A central-midfielder, the player in the middle of the pitch needs to be alert to everything, alert to moves, and that´s the task I carry out.

The new CTR 360 III Maestro boot helps you to receive, control and pass the ball; how does this boot help you to control the game?
Above all I feel very good wearing them, they´re comfortable. Also when striking the ball, when wrapping my foot around the ball, to be honest I love these boots.

In the new Nike film you are a puppet master, controlling the pitch; what do you think of it?
It´s interesting, it´s cool and to be honest when watching the advert I love it.

How does the film mirror your game?
Well, I obviously don´t consider myself to be a puppet (laughs), but good, yes. You always try to transmit the type of person you are on the pitch and it´s something I like to do. I like the doll.

We are giving you the puppet that is used in the film – where will you keep it? Do you like it?
I´ll look after it with affection and keep it in the museum as a souvenir.

What is your advice to young footballers who want to emulate your game?
Well, as a midfielder the only piece of advice I can give is that I try to learn something from each training session, I try to read the game before my opponent because your position when you receive and control the ball is very important. Above all you have to have confidence in your ability.
