The career he had at Barca is spectacular,” Sergio Busquets said on Gerard Pique after the game against Almeria.
He turned this club into one of the best in history. He gave his all for the club and he is an example of what a Barca player should be. We will miss him a lot.”
The match against Almeria became Pique’s last one at Camp Nou as he’s announced his retirement after 14 years at the first team.
The centre-back announced his decision to retire mid-season after failing to prove himself under Xavi. The 35-year-old was the fifth centre-back in the team and could no longer feature as a regular starter.
