Real Sociedad will pay tribute to their captain, Xabi Prieto, with a one-off special badge for the LaLiga match against Leganés on Saturday. Txuri-urdinak will honour their long serving captain by replacing their traditional badge with an image of Prieto, a spokesperson for Sociedad said “Xabi has always worn the La Real badge. Now, La Real will wear him on the badge."
The Spanish midfielder has played his entire career for Sociedad, having made more than 500 appearances in 15 years, but is unfortunately unlikely to feature during the game on Saturday. Prieto has been sidelined since February with a hernia, but that won't stop the fans and club giving him the send off he deserves.
