At the Lluís Companys on Saturday, Carles Puyol will be making his 250th league appearance for FC Barcelona.

Since he made his debut in 1999/2000, Carles Puyol has played 249 league matches in a Barça shirt, and if picked tomorrow, he will have racked up his first quarter of a century.

With all managers

Puyol was a firm favourite of Louis van Gaal, Serra Ferrer, Carles Rexach, Radomir Antic and Frank Rijkaard. In 2004/05 he took over from Luis Enrique as the team’s first choice captain.

Thirteenth derby

Saturday marks Puyol’s 13th Barça v Espanyol derby match. His first was at Montjuïc in 99/00, where he has been involved in three Barça wins, two draws and one defeat.
