He is a very good centre back and rarely ever makes mistakes. He has been at the Catalan club for all of his career nearing 400 appearances for the club. Puyol is regarded as one of the best centre backs in PES due to his tough tackling and great positioning which also has made him a regular for the Spanish side for more than ten years. Due to his speed he can also play as a side back on both sides.
 PES 2010
He has the card card Deep Cover which can be enabled when he is playing as a side back and allow him to act as a third centre back to strengthen the defence. His preferred position in this update is at CB as he has played there in the last years for both club and country.
 PES 2011
Puyol underwent a little stat adjustment in this edition: he gained an amazing 95 in Defence but lost some points in phyisical attributes like Stamina (86 to 82), Speed (83 to 80), Acceleration (88 to 85), Response (91 to 90) and Jump (92 to 90). His Heading Accuracy was raised from 69 to 78, probably after his winning goal against Germany in the 2010 World Cup semi-final.
 PES 2013
He lost 1 point in Defence (from 95 to 94) but he is still one of the best defenders in the game.
