A look at the 10 greatest midfield titans who donned the famous blue and burgundy shirt at the Nou Camp
Spanish giants FC Barcelona have gained worldwide recognition as one of the top three clubs in the world. With their famous dictum Mes Que Un Club, La Blaugrana truly are more than just a club, representing a vastly different Catalonian culture compared to that of Spain under Francisco Franco.
Throughout their history, the club has seen a fair share of unprecedented success and downfalls, while establishing themselves as one of the greatest clubs on the footballing stage. It is currently home to the greatest footballer who ever lived - Lionel Messi.
While Messi has been stealing glances of people around the globe, one cannot undermine the fact that a mammoth part of the credit of Barcelona's glory is down to the midfielders who have graced the Nou Camp.
With a plethora of world-class midfield talent in Barcelona's history, let's see the top ten monumental midfielders who have helped the club become the king-sized alliance they are today.
#10: Guillermo Amor
A spindly-built player with great athleticism, Guillermo Amor was an important centrepiece under Johan Cruyff. Being a product of the youth ranks, the Spaniard is regarded as one of the most loyal servants of the club.
A down-to-earth and hardworking midfielder in his playing days, Guillermo Amor was the no.10 playmaker who had gained mastery in the art of creating spaces for fellow teammates that led to goals.
The midfielder was also known for having excellent composure on the ball along with efficient technique and threatening forward runs. Due to his attitude as a player, he became a role-model for many youngsters at the club, including Pep Guardiola.
In a career that spanned ten years at the Nou Camp, Amor made a total 490 appearances and scored 90 goals for the club.
