Gerard Pique tearfully bids Barcelona farewell

Gerard Pique retired from professional football after Saturday night’s La Liga match between Barcelona and Almeria. 

Pique’s two boys, Milan and Sasha, accompanied him as he led the teams out on a night they will never forget. 

Barcelona’s players, in honor of their retiring comrade, wore jerseys that said “Pique 3” as they came from the Camp Nou tunnel.

Pique appeared before the Camp Nou fans and conducted an honor lap.

After some maturation, he realized that “to love is to know when to go,” as translated by Spanish football writer Samuel Marsden. “It’s the perfect time to depart, but I love Barça, and I’m sure I’ll be back,” he said.

The news that the 35-year-old, one of the greatest central defenders of all time, will retire this week shocked the football world. 

“I’ve always said there won’t be any other team after Barca,” Pique said in a social media video, confirming the rumors. That’s what will happen.

Football gave me everything. Barca has improved my life significantly. I’ve decided to stop since the child’s wishes have been granted. Curlers, everything comes through you (also known as fans). 

“You know me,” Pique said. I’ve been rumored to lead FC Barcelona. I’ll return. I’ll greet you in Nou Camp. Barca, farewell forever.

During his 18-year career, Pique won 35 titles. 

After leaving Man Utd, he won eight La Liga championships and three Champions Leagues with Barcelona. 

Spain also won the World Cup and European Championships. 

Barcelona’s No. 3 Pique has won more trophies than only five other footballers.
