Dani Alves is eternal. In the eleven for the match against Granada this Saturday (6.30 p.m.), the Brazilian side has just broken a new record, becoming the oldest BarÃ§a player to play in a La Liga match, At 38 years and 247 days. He thus exceeds the former goalkeeper Pinto, who had raised this record to 38 years and 190 days against AtlÃ © tico on May 17, 2014. The former player of PSG and Juventus plays his second consecutive official match after playing 90 minutes against Linares (D3) in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.
Returning a few weeks ago to help his “heart club”, the Brazilian also wants to bring his experience to the very young group led by Xavi. It must be said that the player has a lot of baggage, since he is the one who has won the most trophies in his professional career (43), the last of which dates back to last summer, with the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
Dani Alves won 21 titles with FC Barcelona, including two Champions League and six Ligas. If the C1 is inaccessible this season, the 38-year-old will be one of the masterpieces of BarÃ§a version 2021-2022, which will want to seek his place on the podium at the end of the season. Halfway through, there is still a lot of work to be done for Xavi and his men, even if there are only two points that separate them from Betis SÃ © ville.
