    César Rodriguez

    Full name: César Rodríguez Álvarez

    César is another FC Barcelona legend that deserved to be mentioned at BarcaForum history section.
    Let`s look at his stats; He played 433 times for Barca, scoring 294 goals, which makes him the 3rd goalscorer in our history. Only famous Alcántara an Samitier managed to score more. In is career with Blaugrana, Cesar won 5 La Liga trophies

    Cesar signed for FC Barcelona in 1939 but he had to join the army and after that played on loan at Granada so it wasn`t before 1942 that he came back to Barca.
    For seven years in a row he was the clubs best goalscorer. And up to this day is remembered as one of the best players that ever played for Barca. The pinnacle of is career was the season of 52` when partnered with Kubala he helped us scoop all available trophies.
    On international level, Cesar played for Spain and Catalan 11. One fine autumn day of 1947 he scored two goals in a match that saw Catalunya beat Spain.

    Cesar died in 1995 but the memory of him still lives with FC Barcelona.

    Thanx Bojan, written in a very good way. TBH I never knew his guy until now, only saw his name a few times on the Barça top scorer´s list.

    Especially loved this part "One fine autumn day of 1947 he scored two goals in a match that saw Catalunya beat Spain." :biggrin:
