What’s next after this ad

For his last match at Camp Nou as a professional FC Barcelona player, Gérard Piqué received a nice ovation when he left the field. Shortly after the final whistle and victory against Almeria, the Catalan defender returned to the pitch to address the supporters of his favorite club.

During this final speech, the Spanish international first wanted to thank all the people who supported him throughout his career at Barça and then before justifying his choice: “When you get older, you realize that life is about loving, but it’s also about knowing how to leave. My love for Barça is so strong that it was time to take a break. »

Not a farewell, only a goodbye

The 35-year-old, very moved, later expressed his desire to return to FC Barcelona, ​​saying that it was not a goodbye: “I am convinced that in the future I will be here again. I was born and I will die here.” The Catalan supporters then chanted “President, president” to accompany the ultimate return to the locker room of one of the legends of the club.

After leading FC Barcelona to the heights, both in Spain (8 Liga) and in the Champions League (4 titles), Gerard Piqué is bowing out in the most beautiful way. All the more so the Catalan defender, who has played 616 games in all competitions with the Blaugranas, should not be away from the Barcelona club for very long.
