Latest Barcelona News: Barcelona have named four captains for the upcoming season following a vote during their preseason tour
A new era of FC Barcelona leadership has begun with the formal announcement of the club’s four captains for the upcoming 2023–24 season. The news followed the departures of stalwarts Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, leaving two vacancies in the elite club of captains.
The new group of captains, hand-selected to lead the club throughout the season, is made up of well-known players who have established themselves as important members of the squad’s success. The versatile Sergi Roberto, who has always shown his everlasting dedication and enthusiasm for the team over the years, will be leading the charge as the first captain. Roberto has proven to be a trustworthy individual both on and off the field.
The outstanding German shot-stopper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, will serve as the team’s second captain alongside Roberto. Ter Stegen has constantly demonstrated exceptional technique and calmness between the posts, winning him a great deal of admiration from both fans and peers. He would be a great captain because of his background and ability to lead on the field.
Araujo, who has established himself as one of the game’s finest defensive prospects, has been given the third leadership position. Araujo’s development into a key player for the squad has been nothing short of remarkable, and his play on the field has won him the respect and admiration of the coaching staff and other players.
Frenkie de Jong, an excellent Dutch midfielder, completes the four of leaders. Due to his unquestionable talent and adaptability, De Jong has become an essential member of the squad. He has developed into a crucial player over the past year, showcasing his versatility in many spots on the field. His selection as one of the captains puts a stop to reports that he would leave the team in the summer and puts an end to questions regarding his position at the club.
