Barcelona's Confirmed 2021-22 Season Captains After Messi’s Exit

Following Lionel Messi's departure, Barcelona has named Jordi Alba as the club's fourth captain for the 2021-22 season.

Sergio Busquets now wears the armband, with Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto, and Jordi Alba serving as the other three club captains.


As a result of Messi's departure, Alba takes over as fourth captain. Until Marc-Andre ter Stegen withdrew from the race, the full-back appeared to be in contention for the job.


At the Gamper Trophy, Busquets had already done the captain's job of addressing the crowd before kick-off. It was "an honor" for the Spain international to wear the Barca armband, he told supporters.

"It's an honor to be the first team captain of the world's best club. Puyol, Xavi, and Leo are just a few of my favorites. I'll do my best to meet the requirements. He explained, "I want to leave Leo with a special memory."


"Thank you for making history by leading Barca to the top. Being the best in the world and smashing all personal and team records. We wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors. Thank you, Leo, for everything. Finally, With great excitement and ambition, a new season begins. We fight for all the fans, and we fight alongside you. More than ever, we need you. "
