One of the best players in the history of FC Barcelona, an extraordinary striker with a great head for scoring.
Cesar (León 1920 – Barcelona 1995) is the third highest goal scorer in the
history of the club; he was the league’s highest scorer in 1948-49 (28 goals in 24 games),
came second three times, and was the highest scorer for the club for seven consecutive seasons
(between 1944-45 and 1950-51). He was a key part of the legendary forward line of the Kubala
era of the early 1950s.
Known as ‘el Pelucas’, Cesar fought hard and had an impressive ability to anticipate plays. He was famous for his ability to score goals from corners.
He returned to Barcelona s coach in 1963, however, these were not the best of times for the club and so he left his position the following year.
