why not a trophy of cesar rodriguez alvarez or paulino alcantara, who scored more goals than kubala. paulino is actually the highest goalscorer in barcelonas history with something like 350 goals. any reason why barcelona doesnt recognise him as their highest goalscorer?

I great thing would be to do a statue of all long serving players and big players,Icons for the club when they retire.

Like Puyol,Xavi etc. OR then they die.

Why Kubala? Because he was the best Barca player in the 20th century. I am Hungarian, and so proud that one of my country has been such an idol. Forca Laszlo Kubala and Barca!!!

The outfit this statue is portraying is a bit feminine isn't it?
