Luis Figo

Luis Figo was an incredible talent who was loved at the Camp Nou, since his arrival in Barcelona in 1995.

He played 249 games for the Catalans and scored 45 goals, leading his club to two La Liga titles in 1998 and 1999.

However, in 2000 he moved to their biggest rivals – Real Madrid in one of the most controversial transfers we’ve ever seen.

Figo became the biggest enemy at Camp Nou and is still one of the most hated men in Barcelona.


Ronaldo spent only one season at FC Barcelona scoring an incredible 47 goals in 49 games and became the youngest player ever to win FIFA World Player of the Year at the age of 20.

He moved to Inter in 1997, before signing for Real Madrid following the 2002 FIFA World Cup,.

The Brazilian made 177 appearances for Real Madrid, bagging 104 goals.

Ronaldo was crowned as the league’s top scorer playing for both teams, winning El Pichichi in 1997 with Barcelona and in 2004 with Real Madrid.

Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique has moved to Madrid in 1991 and spent 5 seasons at the Bernabeu, scoring 18 times in his 213 appearances for the club.

However, the club’s board did not want to give him a new contract, and he signed for Barcelona as a free agent.

His career at Barcelona was amazing, as the playmaker played 300 games for the club and netted over 100 times. He won seven titles on Camp Nou, including two La Liga and one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.

Enrique also experienced El Clasico as a manager, as he led Barca in the period from 2014 to 2017. He won the Treble with the club in 2015.
