(FC Barcelona-Almería 2-0) He will be remembered better for nearly 400 games and lots of trophies at FC Barcelona. Now Gerard Pique’s career is over.
In Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Almeria at the Camp Nou, club legend Gerard Pique was replaced for the last time in his football career.
Before the match, the 35-year-old Spaniard announced that he was resigning via Twitter. In the 83rd minute of the match, the third number, Pique’s number, appeared on the substitution board.
The crowd immediately stood up to greet the right-footed right-back off the field, and Pique came out on the carpet crying tears, with the captain’s armband around his arm, receiving hugs from both the referee and his fellow players.
Before replacing Pique, Ousmane Dembele and Frenkie de Jong scored the two crucial goals for the home team.
