Puyol about to equal Rexach

Marc Guillén

The FC Barcelona captain is just one point away from becoming the player to have made the third highest number of appearances for FCB, equalling Carles Rexach’s tally of 452 games.

Two weeks after celebrating 10 years in the first team , Carles Puyol is about to make further FC Barcelona history by catching up with Rexach in the ranking of games played.

Second in European games

Less seasons, more games

In 10 seasons with the first team, Carles Puyol is set to equal Rexach, who was here for 14 seasons (1967-81). Top of the list is Migueli, who spent a colossal 16 seasons at FC Barcelona (1973-89).

Most used centre back
