Gerard Piqué has announced his retirement from football and that this Saturday will be his last game at the Camp Nou against Almería, as he has explained in a video on his social networks.
In an emotional 2-minute clip in which he reviewed his entire football career since he arrived at La Masía, the center-back has released one of the news of the year: his retirement from professional football.
“You, culers, have given me everything, and now that the dreams of that child have come true, I want to tell you that it is time to close this circle. I have always said that after Barça there would be no other team, and so it will be . This Saturday will be my last game at the Camp Nou”.
“I have always said that after Barça there would be no other team, and that is how it will be. This Saturday will be my last game at the Camp Nou.”
Therefore, the match against Almería this Saturday at 9:00 p.m. in Barcelona takes on a very special hue, as it will be Piqué’s last in the Barça shirt, at least at the Camp Nou. It remains to be seen if the match against Osasuna next Tuesday will be the definitive one and with which he hangs up his boots just before the break for the World Cup.
The 35-year-old defender has lost a lot of prominence this 2022-23 season after the arrival of new signings such as Koundé, Christensen or Marcos Alonso, and has accumulated just 554 minutes in 9 games played between the League and the Champions League.
