Jordi Alba hit a major landmark for Barcelona during Thursday’s entertaining Europa League draw with Manchester United at the Camp Nou.

The left-back made his 450th appearance for the Catalans. meaning he is now joint ninth (level with Carles Rexach) on the list of all-time appearances for the club.

Barcelona celebrated Alba’s achievement on the training ground on Friday with a special shirt to commemorate the occasion.

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.
