The FC Barcelona roller hockey section is in mourning. At the age of 72, one of the most legendary figures ever to grace the Palau Blaugrana, Carlos Trullols, died in the early hours of Monday morning due to coronavirus. Considered one of the greatest goalkeepers in the history of the game, he was at FC Barcelona from 1977 to 1983.
Born on 17 September 1948 in Barcelona, he played for CD Sant Joan, CD Magnetos, Vendrell, RCD Espanyol, Cerdanyola and Vilanova, and his final club was Barça, where under coach Josep Lorente he won no fewer than 19 major titles, including six European Cups and five leagues.
Having also starred for the Spanish national team, he was also its coach, as well as vice-president of the Spanish Federation and secretary of the Catalan Sports Tribunal.
