Five Barça players in ‘L’Équipe’ Team of 2010

Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets, Xavi Hernández, Andrés Iniesta and Leo Messi are the five Barça players included in the 2010 Team of the Year of the French magazine ‘L’Équipe’.

International recognition continues to rain down on the Barça team and the prestigious French sports magazine ‘L’Équipe’ is the latest organisation to honour Guardiola’s team, with five players named in its Team of the Year for 2010.


The magazine reckons that Piqué’s understanding with Carles Puyol, “has been crucial both for FC Barcelona and Spain’s brilliant 2010”.
