Sergi Barjuán i Esclusa (Catalan: [ˈsɛrʒi βərʒuˈan j əsˈkɫuzə], Spanish: [ˈserʝi βarˈxwan j esˈklusa]; born 28 December 1971), simply known as Sergi, is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a left defender, and a current coach.
Best known for his Barcelona stint he played nearly one full decade for the first team, being a major part in the conquest of nine major titles. Having reached the Spanish national team shortly after making his professional club debut, he appeared in two World Cups and as many European Championships.
Born in Les Franqueses del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalonia, Sergi was a youth product of giants FC Barcelona. He had not yet appeared in La Liga when he was summoned by first-team manager Johan Cruyff to a UEFA Champions League group stage game away against Galatasaray S.K. (0–0, on 24 November 1993). From then on he became the side's undisputed first-choice, never playing less than 31 matches until 1999; with Barça he won three leagues, two cups and two supercups, adding the 1997 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the subsequent UEFA Super Cup, partnered in the other defensive wing by another youth graduate, Albert Ferrer.
After being deemed surplus to requirements by coach Louis van Gaal, Sergi moved to Atlético de Madrid, where he still posted three respectable seasons (85 league appearances, although he collected 33 yellow cards combined).
In July 2009, after several years working in marketing and running soccer camps for youngsters, Sergi returned to Barcelona, being named its Juvenil B coach. On 22 May 2012 he was handed his first job in the professionals, signing for three years with Recreativo de Huelva in the second division.
Shortly after having been promoted into Barcelona's main squad, Sergi made his debut for Spain on 9 February 1994, in a friendly game with Poland in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in which he scored his only goal for the national team.
