Official: Barca confirm captains


FC Barcelona have confirmed Lionel Messi will remain first-team captain for the 2020/2021 season.

There was an uncertainty surrounding the Argentine's future after he handed in a transfer request last month following the 8-2 los to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.

However, Messi announced last week he will remain at the club for the upcoming season and he has now kept his captain's armband.

Messi will be backed by fellow captains, including Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto.

Messi's current deal with the Catalan giants expires next year, but there are no indications he will sign a new deal anytime soon.
