In 2012, from Valencia CF, Jordi Alba Ramos returned to FC Barcelona in his second spell as a Barça player. Born in Hospitalet de Llobregat on March 21, 1989, the winger had already spent more than seven years in the youth categories of Barça.

In 2006, the stage from Alevín B to Cadete B Barcelona gave way to that of UE Cornellà, which will lead him to Juvenil A of Valencia and the subsidiary of the cast of the Turia capital. The move to the Valencian first team comes after a course on loan to Nàstic de Tarragona. An undisputed starter in the Che team, he plays 106 games.

The next step is FC Barcelona. Jordi Alba was presented as a new Barça player on July 5, 2012, thus becoming the first signing of the Tito Vilanova era. Alba made his official debut on August 19, 2012, in the 2012/13 League match against Real Sociedad, which ended with a clear Barça victory (5-1). Catalan is fundamental in the League of 100 points. Since this first course, the 18 has been the undisputed starter and a key player in achieving the titles that FC Barcelona wins.

In the field of national teams, Jordi Alba is one of those chosen to play in the European Championship in Poland and Ukraine, occupying the left side. The one from Hospitalet wins that European Championship and is a finalist in the 2013 Confederations Cup. He also has international experience in two World Cups, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018.
