Gonzalvo III

Gonzalvo III

Marià Gonzalvo (Mollet del Vallès, 1922 - Barcelona, 2007), known as Gonzalo III (his other two brothers also played for FC Barcelona), is one of the best players to ever have worn the blaugrana colours

From the middle of the pitch he was able to demonstrate his superior qualities and vision. He possessed a good head and could also notch up a few goals to help the team along. His commitment to FC Barcelona during his lengthy spell was a tribute to his love of the city; having turned down enormous offers from Torino.

He left the club in 1957 at the age of 34 to strengthen the B team's squad for their top flight campaign of 1956/57. The Club dedicated a tribute to him, together with Gustau Biosca, at the Camp Nou on February 7, 1962.
