sergi roberto

At 14, Sergi Roberto, born on February 7, 1992, left Reus to set foot in FC Barcelona’s Masia. Coming from Nàstic de Tarragona, the midfielder consolidates stage after stage until he becomes a fixture in the reserve squad led by Luis Enrique, the team with which he made his debut in the 2009/10 season.

The Catalan made his official debut with the Barça first team on November 10, 2010, in a Cup match at the Camp Nou against Ceuta (5-1). After becoming a benchmark in Second Division football, Sergi Roberto made the final leap to the First Division in the summer of 2013. Under the orders of Gerardo Martino, and with the number 24 on his back, he played 27 games, 17 in the League, 6 in the Copa del Rey, and 4 in the Champions League.

Roberto gradually gains minutes in the first team until he consolidates himself in the starting eleven in the 2015/16 season when he begins to alternate the midfielder position with that of full-back. He was a crucial player in the historic comeback at the Camp Nou against Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 on March 8, 2017. He scored the sixth goal in the 93rd minute, classifying FC Barcelona in the quarterfinals. In the summer of 2018, Roberto is elected the fourth team captain and thus joins Leo Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Gerard Piqué.

In his seasons at the Club, the academy player has accumulated 23 titles with the first team.
