Futbol Club Barcelona or usually call as “Barca” was founded on “29 November 1899” about 120 years ago from today as “Foot-Ball Club Barcelona” Founded in 1899 by a group of Swiss, Spanish, English, and Catalan footballers led by Joan Gamper, the club has become a symbol of Catalan culture and Catalanism.
A Crowd space of 99,354 people in a stadium named as Camp Nou chanting and cheering for blaugranas. A Spanish club in a Spanish league “La Liga” currently running by a president named as “Josep Maria Bartomeu” and the manager of the club “Ernesto Valverde”.
The History of this club begins with the time when they had nothing and then after 3 years the club won its first ever trophy in 1902 Years passing, Barca wasn’t able to get that much of success but than a miracle happened just like a swish of a magical wand and an Angel in a face of a man arrived which the world known as “Johan Cruyff” in the year 1988. The guy was none other than the miracle of God and he changed the whole philosophy and the state of the club. Barca adapt a new style of play with some new players arrived and that style was just above the standards of the clubs which their opponents wasn’t able to understand.
Cruyff established Barca’s Academy “La Masia” and inject his philosophy in the roots of this club, the La Masia players. In result, the academy started to produce some world class talents ready to compete any footballing giant at that time in a small age which was surprising for the rest of the world. Cruyff left with a brilliant success rate and then years after years the stability of the club was just average till the arrival of “Frank Rijkaard” and his continuity of the Cruyyf’s philosophy. He signed some world known great talent like Ronaldinho and Barca was started to compete the non-stoppable arch rivals Real Madrid. Rijkaard left in 2008, after spending 8 years and won 8 trophies at Barca and then a shocking news the world heard. The President “Laporta” appointed Barca B team coach “Pep Guardiola” for the first team squad but no one had a clue that their Golden Era is about to begin. Pep took charge in the year 2008 and then world was just witnessing a new Cruyff in a face of him. Same philosophy, same style and the same classic Barcelona playing. Academy players joining the first team and doing wonders. Barca won recorded 6 trophies in a single calendar, keeping in mind that no other club did it until now and the players he polished the world known as Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Puyol, Busquets and many more. The golden days of pep then ended in the year 2012 and his 14 trophies here and then the manager “Tata Martino” arrived under a new president “Sandro Rosell”. Rosell resigned just after a short period of time and “Josep Maria Bartomeu” took over the charge. Martino’s era was just another example of bad era’s Barca ever had. Then the arrival of “Luis Enrique” in 2015, changed the scenario in which Barca managed to won “The Treble” twice and he left with 9 titles in three years. After him Barca contacted “Ernesto Valverde” to take over the vacant space of the job and the arrival of him in 2017 brings 4 trophies yet and he’s currently hoping to add more.
