The captains of the first team received this Thursday morning the BarÃ§a Players Trophy 2020, awarded by the Association of Former Club Players. Sergio Busquets, Gerard PiquÃ©, Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba received the gift on behalf of the entire team, who are the recipients of this honor for their exemplary attitude during the first months of the coronavirus pandemic. In the 2020 edition of the BarÃ§a Players Award, the recipients were the first male and female teams. For the circumstances related to the pandemic, the prize has not been awarded until now.
The gift, a personalized replica of the FC Barcelona jersey from the 1920s, was presented by the former president of the Players’ Association, Ramon alfonseda, accompanied by the vice-president of FC Barcelona Rafael Yuste. The captains received the card which certifies them as honorary members of the Association, in gratitude for their contribution of 0.5% of their salaries to the entity.
According to the award jury, the player’s attitude during this difficult period, from February to June of last year, resulted in individual and collective gestures such as economic contributions and participation in initiatives promoted by the FC Barcelona and other institutions. Club workers, hospitals, social entities, healthcare workers and the scientific community have all benefited from these altruistic actions.
