Former Barcelona and Spain international goalkeeper Antoni Ramallets has died at the age of 89 after a long illness.

Ramallets spent most of his playing career at Barca and played 473 games for the Catalan giants between 1946 and 1961.

With the club he won six La Liga titles, five Spanish Cups and two Inter-Cities Fairs Cups.

He was also a five-time winner of the Zamora trophy, which is awarded to the goalkeeper with the lowest goals-to-games ratio during the La Liga season.

Ramallets earned 35 caps playing for Spain and was part of the national squad that participated in the 1950 World Cup in Brazil where they reached the semi-finals.

His performance in Brazil earned him the nickname ‘The Cat of Maracana’.
