Four captains from La Masia

FC Barcelona 2018/19 will have four captains from the Barça youth system, La Masia. Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto will be the ones to wear the armband whenever the team take the field.

Lionel Messi will be the first captain. The Argentine takes over the role following the departure of Andrés Iniesta. The former Barça midfielder had the job from the 2015/16 season when he took over from Xavi, who in turn had inherited the position from Carles Puyol.

Messi has had the role of second captain since 2015 and now he will be first captain following in the footsteps of the likes of Puyol, Xavi and Iniesta.

The second captain will be Sergio Busquets. For the upcoming season, the midfielder will be second in line after 10 seasons with the first team. One of the most talented players to come out of La Masia, Sergio has been one of the captains since 2014/15.

Gerard Piqué becomes one of the quartet of captains, third in line, just before the 10th anniversary of his debut for the first team.

Completing the foursome is Sergi Roberto, who takes over the role from the departed Javier Mascherano. The Catalan player, a member of the first team squad since 2013, continues to establish himself as a key part of the current FC Barcelona squad.
