La Liga: Barcelona defender Pique announces retirement

Pique said through social media that “this Saturday will be my last game at Camp Nou.”

“It is the moment to end this stage of my life. I always said that after Barcelona there will be no other club, and that is the way it is going to be,” said Pique.

Pique will feature for the last time at Camp Nou against Almeria on Saturday, reports Xinhua.

Pique, a three-time Champions League winner with the Spanish club, has played 615 games for Barcelona, scoring 52 goals.
