Recommended by Domènec Balmanya, Miguel Bernardo Bianquetti, known as Migueli, arrived at the club in the season of 1973-74 despite only being able to play one game due to him carrying out his military service. The following season, however, he began to establish himself in the team. The Barça ‘3’ became a regular in the team for all the coaches with the exception of Udo Lattek, who incomprehensively left him on the bench in the season of 1981-82. From when he moved past Rexach in 1986 until he was overtaken by Xavi in 2012, Migueli was the player who had made most appearances for the Club.
Migueli was a player with great pride; he played one final of the Recopa in 1979 with a broken collarbone. A brave, technical, relentless player who was great in the air, spomething which helped him both defend and attack. A true FC Barcelona legend. He was given a testimonial game on 5 Septermber 1989.
