Saturday night's match between Barcelona and Almeria at the Camp Nou has given great emotions, not for the result more than for the farewell of Gerard Pique, who has played for the last time as a Barcelona player.

Farewell to Gerard Pique! Here I was born, here I will die!

Even more emotional were Pique's words in his farewell:

Farewell to Gerard Pique! Here I was born, here I will die!

"First of all, thank you to all my teammates, the staff, the people in the gym, the club, to everyone who helps us every day to make everything easier, thank you to the board for all these years! In life, when you grow up, you realize that sometimes loving means giving up. A relationship with so much love, so much passion, I think it's time to give each other some space, give each other air, and I'm convinced that in the future I'll be here again. I love Barca. That is why I consider it the right moment to go. This is not a goodbye. I was born here, I will die here," said the Barcelona star.
