The 20-year-old winger makes his debut with the Barça 35 first team after his father did
The shirt with the number 7 from Iñaki Urdangarin continues to preside over the Palau Blaugrana. The ex-ballonman player has returned to step on the Barcelona temple this Saturday for a double reason: to participate in the commemoration of the 50 years of the Barça pavilion and to see the debut of his son Pablo with the Barcelona first team.
Pablo, 20, has made his debut 35 after his father did with the Barça shirt. If his father (who played 14 seasons at Barça) wore 7, the son of the ex-Duke of Palma and Infanta Cristina wears 77. With this number he has jumped onto the track at 20 minutes for Barça-Huesca of the Asobal League . Pablo, left-handed like his father although he plays at the extreme, arrived at the club last season and made his debut for the reserve team against Málaga a month ago.

With 20 years and 1.86, his presence was the great novelty of the call for Carlos Ortega, Iñaki’s former partner in the ‘dream team’ and who had already met Pablo at Hannover. The young winger spent a season in the German side’s U19 squad before leaving in 2019 for Nantes.
With the outbreak of the pandemic he returned to Barcelona and last season he trained with Barça B, although he could not make his debut due to the lack of chips. On September 26, he played his first game with the subsidiary and a month later he was able to debut with the first team. His father, who since June no longer has to spend the night in the Álava prison (where he condemns for the ‘Nóos case’), has been able to witness him live as in the first half Pablo has had a couple of occasions to release his locker.
