Barcelona central defender Gerard Pique has vowed to remain loyal to Barcelona
insisting that he will finish his career at Camp Nou.
The 34-year-old progressed through the youth system at La Masia before he joined
Manchester United academy in 2004. In 2008 he made his return to Barcelona and
has been there ever since. He has made 568 appearances for the Blaugrana scoring
51 goals and also providing 13 assists along the way.
Speaking to La Sotana, Pique said that he will retire in Barcelona and admitted that
this could be his last season as a professional footballer. He said that the say he can
no longer be of use to the club he will retire.
“I will retire at Barca. This could be the last season, yes. I go year after year,
so I cannot guarantee that I will be there next season. The day I feel that I can’t help
Barca anymore, I will retire,” said Pique was quoted by Goal.com
However, as of now, the center-back has committed to giving his best for the club.
He also admitted to former president Josep Maria Bartomeu being one of the worst he
has witnessed. Bartomeu is said to be responsible for the financial crisis that
Barcelona is currently undergoing, the reason why Lionel Messi had to depart,
and also why players like Pique, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets have had to take a
massive pay cut.
