Alba posted a picture of the team posing with the shirt on social media and the following message:
“A real pride for me to complete 450 games with the shirt of the team of my life. Now to keep adding more. VISCA BARCA!”
The 33-year-old hasn’t been a regular by any means this season but will be hoping he can add a few more appearances to his tally before the end of the campaign.
Next on the list is Victor Valdés who played 535 games for Barcelona during his career.
