Koeman, born in 1963, has represented Barcelona as both a player and a coach. He spent six years as the former, between 1989 and 1995, while took over the reins as the boss just this past summer. He’s famed for scoring the winning goal in Barcelona’s first ever European Cup triumph, against Sampdoria at Wembley back in 1992.
Alba was born in 1989 in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, joining Barcelona at ten before spells with Cornella, Valencia B, Nastic and Valencia. He returned to Camp Nou as a first-teamer in 2012. Griezmann was born the following year, 1990, and joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2019. He’s scored 28 goals in 87 games for the Blaugrana.
