Digimagaz.com –  Barcelona were left behind by many senior players who also became captains once the 2022/2023 season was over. Barcelona were then faced with looking for a new captain, with Ousmane Dembele as one of the candidates.

The 2022/2023 season has been going quite hard for Barcelona. Even so, the Catalan club was able to close the season with the La Liga title.

Barcelona must give up one by one for the senior players to move. Gerard Pique became the first player to choose to move from Barcelona. Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba then followed in Pique’s footsteps.

These three players have an important role for Barcelona. Not only at the technical level, but also leadership. Now, Barcelona must find a new captain after Busquets and Alba left Camp Nou.

Barcelona captain candidate

When referring to the composition of the captains in the past few seasons, two names are almost certain to become captains for the 2023/2024 season. They are Sergi Roberto and Marc-Andre ter Stegen. They have been captains since last season.

However, Barcelona is not enough with only two captains. At the very least, the Catalan club will appoint four players to serve as captain.

Apart from Roberto and Ter Stegen, there are three names to be candidates for the Barcelona captain. The three players are Robert Lewandowski, Frenkie de Jong, and Ousmane Dembele.

Lewandowski is a highly respected senior figure. Technically, he is also very important for Barcelona. Frenkie de Jong also has a crucial role in the locker room. Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele is a player with a long tenure at Barcelona.

Why Should It Be Ousmane Dembele?

Dembele has defended Barcelona for six seasons. Not many Barcelona players have served longer than him. There is only Sergi Roberto who has worked longer than Dembele, namely 11 seasons.

This factor makes Dembele, according to SPORT, a candidate for the captain of Barcelona for the 2023/2024 season. Although not the main captain, the 26-year-old winger is considered worthy of the captain’s role because of his loyalty to the club.

From season to season, Dembele continues to be said to be leaving Barcelona. Many clubs are interested in the services of players from France. However, he chose to stay at Barcelona. Xavi has highly appreciated Dembele’s ability and loyalty.
