Sadurni (l’Arboç del Penedès, 1941), considered the successor to the great goalkeeper Antoni Ramallets, he always had a lot of competition for his place, firstly from José Manuel Pesudo and then also Miquel Reina
But most importantly he was always held in high esteem by the fans for his human quality and skill of his game. He stood out for his calm, confident manner and good positioning. He tended to shy away from unnecessary show in favour of efficiency. He attained three Ricardo Zamora trophies for being the goalkeeper with the fewest goals conceded in the Spanish league in the seasons 1968/69, 1973/74, and 1974/75. He was also the hero of “The Bottle Final” in 1968, a Copa del Rey won by Barça in the Santiago Bernabéu in an extremely hostile atmosphere.
In 1976 seeing that the trainer Weisweiler wasn´t interested in him, he decided to retire despite still being in excellent physical condition. On the 1 September of that same year, the club played a testomonial, farewell match for him shared with Antoni Torres and Joaquim Rifé. Barça played against Stade Reims and won 2-0.
