Lluís Aloy, who played for FC Barcelona from 1950 through 1954, passed away this Friday at the age of 82. Born in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Aloy learned to play football in Barça’s youth system. The brutal competition for a starting position in the first team - with Basora, César, Kubala, Vila, Moreno and Machón, among others - meant that Aloy played 24 matches as an Azulgrana. However, he scored 18 goals in his 24 appearances. He was part of the legendary team now known as the Barça of the Five Cups.

In his four seasons at Les Corts, Aloy won the Copa Latina, two Ligas, three Spanish Cups and two Eva Duarte Cups. He continued his career at Oviedo, Cádiz, Sabadell and Figueres. Once retired, Aloy started his career as a manager which brought him back to Barça’s youth system. He also coordinated Barça’s youth system in the 70s.
