Top 10 Barcelona players of all time

To mark the end of Andres Iniesta's illustrious 22-year Barcelona career, Sports Mole counts down the 10 greatest players in the club's history.

Barcelona said farewell to one of their greatest ever players on Sunday night when Andres Iniesta left the field for the final time following a glittering career which has seen him win 32 trophies in 22 years at the club - 16 of which have been spent in the first team.

The 34-year-old has been heralded as the greatest Spanish player of all time in the numerous tributes to him during the closing months of his time at Barcelona, but where does he rank in the annals of his club's greatest players?

Barcelona have boasted some of the best of all time amongst their ranks down the years, and here Sports Mole attempts to narrow that extensive list down to just 10.

The players have been judged solely on their Barcelona careers - hence the lack of Diego Maradona, Romario and Ronaldo - but there are still a plethora of legends who miss out.

Indeed, the list of players who have not made the list would be the envy of most teams, with the likes of Rivaldo, Neymar, Gerard Pique, Victor Valdes, Luis Suarez, Hristo Stoichkov, Dani Alves, Ronald Koeman, Andoni Zubizarreta and Luis Figo all failing to make the top 10.

Other less familiar names such as Paulino Alcantara, Jose Samitier and Migueli also deserve honourable mentions, but such in the competition in this list that they too miss out.
