Barcelona’s Jordi Alba is one of the best full-backs in the world, but when it comes to his own transportation he’s still reliant on his family – despite being 30.
Alba’s team-mate, Gerard Pique, recently revealed on Spanish TV that Alba gets a lift to training every day from his dad – yes, you heard right.
Pique said on La Resistencia: “His [Fati’s] Dad brings him,’ he said. ‘Just like Jordi Alba.”
Alba does not have a driving licence, so therefore relies on his father to get him to work.
One would suggest it may be worth Alba sorting one of these sometime in the near future.
On the pitch, the Catalan giants are set to be without the defender for another few weeks after he suffered a fresh injury blow in last week’s goalless draw with Slavia Prague.
The Spaniard had to be replaced by Sergi Roberto at the Nou Camp, with Barca revealing the severity of the thigh problem.
“Jordi Alba has had a relapse of the left biceps femoris muscle injury. He is injured and his evolution will define his availability,” read a club statement.
It is believed to be a similar injury to the one Alba sustained in the Champions League stalemate with Borussia Dortmund back in September.
Alba is expected to miss the upcoming games against Leganes, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid.
