JORDI ALBA has treated himself to a Range Rover Sport after passing his driving test at the age of 31.
The Barcelona left-back was caught on camera arriving into the Blaugrana training ground on his own… much to the relief of his dad who doesn’t have to drop him off anymore.
Alba‘s Barca and Spanish international team-mate Gerard Pique poked fun at the player last year for not being able to drive himself.
Appearing on television show La Resistencia, the ex-Manchester United centre-back was asked how teenage starlet Ansu Fati gets to training.
Pique responded by saying: “His dad brings him. Just like Jordi Alba.”
And it’s not just team-mates that Alba has been the butt of jokes from, after Real Madrid star Raphael Varane mocked him for not having a license in December.
Speaking after the clash, Alba stated: “Everyone thinks that Varane is a saint, but he’s not like that.
“He told me: ‘Rat boy, you don’t have a driver’s license.'”
But no-one can tease Alba anymore, as footage published by journalist David Ibanez showed the defender proudly sitting in the driver’s seat as he made his way into the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training facility.
A picture of Alba posing for the camera after passing his test has also emerged on social media, with the player joking it’s about time he got his license.
In the caption of the image, Alba wrote: “Thanks to my friends from @motoescuela and especially to @xavivallejo.
“Goal achieved! It was time, right?”
