  • Messi Busquets Pique y Sergi Roberto son los nuevos capitanes

Lionel Messi has been officially named new captain of Barcelona following Andres Iniesta's exit from Camp Nou.

Iniesta had been the club captain since 2015, when Xavi Hernandez left for Qatar, but he moved to Japanese side Vissel Kobe earlier this summer.

Sergio Busquets will be the vice-captain, with Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto the third and fourth captains respectively.

Lionel Messi has been named as Barcelona's new captain for the 2018/19 season.

From that quartet, the club announced on their official website that Messi will be their first-choice captain with Busquets as vice-captain.

Messi, Barca's all-time top goalscorer, has been a vice-captain since 2015.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor will be aiming to lift his first trophy as captain on Sunday when Ernesto Valverde's side take on Sevilla in the Spanish Supercopa.

Legitimising Barca's claim to nurturing talent over heavy expenditure, all four players are graduates of the famed La Masia.

The midfielder, who is now 26, has been at the club since 2006 and has made over 200 first team appearances since making his debut in 2010 under Pep Guardiola.

Roberto takes over as the fourth captain, filling the gap left by Messi's worldwide team-mate Javier Mascherano following his move to Hebei China Fortune in January.
