Chapi Ferrer’s Barça squad will contain Juliano Belletti, Patrick Kluivert, Javier Saviola and Edgar Davids amongst others. In the near future other names will be announced for the trip to Liverpool.
Recently, the Barça Legends announced a four handed tournament in Sao Paulo, Brazil involving Bayer Munich, Borussia Dortmund, the blaugranes and hosts Sao Paulo on 15 December.
Who are the Barça Legends?
The Barça Legends are the outcome of an FC Barcelona programme to make good use of the stars that have worn the club jersey in the past. The project looks to help globalise the Barça name and the club’s values through its former players, and also enable them to further their playing careers after retirement from professional duties. The programme involves different fixtures and the organisation of parallel events in different parts of the world.
