Who are the Barcelona shortest players of all time? Everyone knows that Messi is on the shorter side but did you know that there are and were players shorter than the Barca legend? Yeah me neither, and I was surprised to say the least
Height: 5' 5" (1.65 m)
Maradona is best known for captaining Argentina to victory at the 1986 World Cup, where he was named the tournament's best player and scored two of its most famous goals. In his professional career, he was twice sold for a world-record transfer fee: to Barcelona in 1982 and then to Napoli in 1984. He played 188 games with Napoli, winning two Serie A titles and a UEFA Cup for the Italian club.
Romario: Barcelona shortest players
Height: 1.67 m (5 ft 6 in)
In 1993 he left PSV for FC Barcelona, where he helped the team to the 1993–94 La Liga championship. He scored five goals at the 1994 World Cup, where Brazil broke a 24-year title drought, and he was named the 1994 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Player of the Year.
3. Pedro: Barcelona shortest players
Height: 1.69 m (5 ft 7 in)
Unlike some of the other great Barcelona youth products, Pedro wasn't necessarily destined in the eyes of some for a place in the first-team. Fortunately for all concerned, his manager Guardiola knew otherwise from his time working with the striker in the B team. Pedro isn't one of Barcelona's most glamorous players, but he is one that fits its style perfectly, working well with their front three in linking with the likes of Messi and David Silva. He has proved his reliability with a decent goal record as well as some important strikes in big games including last season's Champions League final.
4. Lionel Messi Is One of Barcelona Shortest Players
Height: 1.70 m (5 ft 7 in)
It might come as a surprise to many that Messi is not at the top of the list. In 2001, Lionel Messi came to FC Barcelona as a 14-year-old. After 480 appearances for the senior team and 441 goals later, maybe the time has come for Messi to leave Barcelona. Messi, one of the greatest footballers of all time, might not renew his contract with Barca next year.He is one of the most influential footballer and probably the greatest ever dribbler to have set foot on the football field.
5. Eusebio Sacristán: Barcelona shortest players
Height: 1.70 m (5 ft 7 in)
Eusebio has spent almost 15 years at Barcelona in many different roles. As a player, he played in the Catalans midfield for seven seasons between 1988 and 1995. He then played an essential part under then-manager Johan Cruyff which saw the club winning many trophies. (Source) He returned as an assistant manager to Frank Rjijaard between 2003 and 2008, which were five glorious years for Barcelona.
