country of birth
A player who started his career in the Barcelona youth system who never really fulfilled his potential. His time at Newcastle United being a typical example. Used extensively as a substitute he will best be remembered for a goal against Sunderland in a 4-1 win. Undoubtedly the lad had skills, it was his application and lack of fitness which would prove his downfall time and time again and was eventually sold to Ajax, where he experienced the same issues. Albert still managed to represent his county 17 times however (as well as 15 appearances at junior levels), scoring 2 goals at senior level.
