Sad news for Barcelona as their star player face lengthy injury layoff, Barcelona unveiled new club crest



Barcelona have not been enjoying the best of times at the back with Gerard Piqué making high-profile mistakes as Valverde’s side were held by Girona and defeated at Leganés during the midweek round of fixtures.



The Blaugrana have been dealt with another blow with news that Samuel Umtiti could face several months out after ligament damage was detected in his left knee. That leaves Ernesto Valverde with just three senior central defenders, until January at least: Gerard Piqué, Clément Lenglet and Thomas Vermaelen.


Thomas Vermaelen, meanwhile, has had an injury plagued time at Camp Nou and has only managed one appearance this season, a rather disappointing display at left back during the defeat at Butarque.

Clement Lenglet, meanwhile, has still yet to fully adapt to his new side after his summer move from Sevilla and has been used sparingly by Valverde, playing just 160 minutes in all competitions so far this season and picking up a red card against Girona.

The Barça boss now faces the task of forming a new central defensive partnership in place of the established Piqué-Umtiti tandem. Last season the pair were Valverde’s sixth and eighth most-used players respectively with Vermaelen, the third choice behind the pair, making just 20 appearances in 2017-18.



In like manner late yesterday Barcelona unveiled new club crest which will differ from the current one with the elimination of the iconic ‘FCB’ lettering. The La Liga side want to change the design for the first time since 2002 and it is expected to be used from the start of next season. Starting next season, if approved, Barcelona will be playing with the 11th different crest in their 119-year history.

Barcelona have unveiled their proposed new club crest club as they look to modernize the iconic badge but the shape and colour will be kept the same to ensure it is instantly recognizable. The first edition was the shield of the city of Barcelona, with a crown and a bat above, surrounded by two branches, one of laurel and another of palm.

 All of this was to represent the club’s relationship with the city it was born in.

The main novelty is that the letters ‘FCB’ have disappeared, as the club understands that these acronyms have no use because the first team and the club at an institutional level is identified by FC Barcelona, with the rest of the club known as Barca. In addition, they were initials that could lead to misunderstandings because they are the same ones used by Bayern Munich.
