Barcelona confirm Lionel Messi will continue as captain ahead of 2020/21 season

Barcelona have confirmed today that Lionel Messi will continue as club captain at the Camp Nou for the 2020-21 season.

The Argentine will continue to wear the armband with the other captains: Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique, and Sergi Roberto in that order.

The news is no surprise even though Messi asked to leave the club over the summer and has said he’s only really staying because the club made it all but impossible for him to go.

Messi has worn the armband ever since Andres Iniesta left for Vissel Kobe in 2018, while this will be the third straight season that Busquets has been the vice-captain.
