Riqui Puig is a 21-year-old footballer who plays as a central midfielder for Spain and Barcelona.
Regarded as one of the brightest stars to come out of La Masia during a rather dull period for Barcelona’s youth, which saw no player getting a permanent place in the team since Sergi Roberto.
He made his debut with the first-team in 2018, in the Copa del Rey against Cultural Loenesa, and assisted Denis Suarez for the fourth goal of the game.
Puig got his much-awaited breakout season under Quique Setien in 2019/20, playing 11 games, registering two assists. He instantly became a fan-favourite and was awarded to the senior team in 2020, given the #12 jersey.
