Gerard Pique has decided to close the chapter. But also the whole book. In a video posted on social networks on Thursday, the Barça defender announced that he would play his last match at Camp Nou on Saturday evening. “My childhood dreams have come true, it’s time to close the loop (…) I always said that after Barca there would be no other team, and so it will be“, he announces.
Saturday evening, against Almeria, Piqué will therefore wear the Blaugrana jersey for the last time. From the height of his 35 years, the one who has inexorably fallen back in the hierarchy of his team’s defenders has therefore preferred to say stop now. “Many people have been talking about me for several months, weeks. So far, I haven’t said anything. But now I want to be the one talking about me. Like many of you, I have always supported Barça (…) From a very young age, I did not want to be a football player, but to be a Barça player. (…) It’s been 25 years since I arrived at Barça. I left, I came back. Football gave me everything. Barça gave me everything. You Culers gave me everything “, says the defender, believing that all his dreams have “accomplished“.
