Capitans FCB

The departure of Xavi Hernández, Barcelona's first captain so far, forced the other three make a step forward. This way, Andrés Iniesta will be the first captain; Leo Messi, the second and Sergio Busquets, the third.

So a new captain had to be chosen. This tuesday, before the training session, the squad voted the fourth captain with two clear favorites: Javier Mascherano (who has always been praised by Luis Enrique) and Gerard Piqué (one of the players with more years in the club).

Finally the chosen one has been Javier Mascherano, who was captain of Argentina national team unil this place was taken by Messi. The players congratulated Mascherano during the training session, as you can see in this picture.
