Transferred in the summer of 2012 to FC Barcelona, Alexandre Song has become a talisman for the Catalan side when he is on the pitch.
With Tito Vilanova, Jordi Roura or Gerardo Martino on the bench, Barcelona has never lost in the Primera Division when the Cameroonian footballer was on the ground. 25 matches in La Liga has played Song in Barcelona’s shirt, without the Blaugrana grouping to taste the defeat. 23 wins – including one in the first El Clasico of the season, 2-1 against Real Madrid – and two draws, it is the record of the Catalans’ results with Alexandre Song on the pitch.
Song played 41 matches in all competitions in Barcelona’s jersey. The Catalans have lost just twice with the Cameroon international in the field, both defeats coming last season in the UEFA Champions League: 2-1 away to Celtic, 0-3 with Bayern Munich.
17.5 million euros paid Barcelona in 2012 for the transfer of Alex Song from Arsenal. Although not one of the most important players for Tata martino at the moment, the Cameroon had good developments every time when was sent to the field.
