Sergi will make his debut as an Almeria coach this Wednesday... and it won't be the first time that he makes a debut at Camp Nou as an opponent. When he left Barcelona in 2002 as a player, he made his debut for his new club Atletico de Madrid also at Barcelona's stadium. 

1 September 2002

Sergi played 9 seasons in Barcelona (from 92-93 to 2001-2002). When he left Barcelona in the summer was to join Atletico de Madrid. And the first match he played for Atletico was at Camp Nou... and Luis Enrique scored twice! Guardiola even came to the stadium -he was playing for Brescia on that moment- to watch the match.

Sergi will make his debut as Almeria's coach this Wednesday. It will be his first match in charge of a First Division team... at Camp Nou. Once again.
