Sergio Busquets takes No. 5 shirt

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets will wear the No. 5 shirt next season following the retirement of Carles Puyol.

- Reports: Suarez appeal set for Aug. 8

Puyol had worn the number for 12 seasons before announcing he was hanging up his boots at the end of the last campaign.

Busquets told the club's official website: "It is an honour to wear No. 5, and also an honour that Carles Puyol thought that I should inherit it."

Busquets will wear the new number for the first time on Saturday when Barca head to France to take on Nice.
