Barcelona will have four captains for the 2018-19 season, with Lionel Messi officially taking over the armband from the departed Andres Iniesta.

The Argentina global, who already wears the armband for his country, takes over from Iniesta following his move to Vissel Kobe at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

Messi has skippered the Blaugrana on numerous occasions before having been the official vice-captain since 2015, but will now lead the Liga champions out on a permanent basis.

Sergio Busquets becomes vice-captain, subsequently to be followed by Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto ready to deputise upon the aforementioned players' absence.

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

It's the first time centre-back Pique, who returned to the club from Manchester United in 2008, has held one of the roles.

It is the first time since the 2014/2015 season that all the club's four captains have come through the club's famous La Masia youth academy.

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

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.
