Sergio Busquets is the new captain of FC Barcelona, succeeding the departed Lionel Messi. The club said it would be Gérard Piqué, Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba as replacements.
The Spanish midfielder was already the second captain last season, behind Messi. However, Busquets can wear the captain’s armband for the first time in competition on Sunday during the home game against Real Sociedad.
He was also the captain of Spain during the European Championship last summer.
