Good afternoon, thanks for being here. The reason for the call today is to inform you that at the end of season stop being Barcelona player. The club knows this and agree to terminate our contract and waive the two years that remain outstanding. After the last two operations so aggressive, it’s costing me a lot to regain the level that I demand me to continue here, more than I thought and much of what I had been told surgeons. So I took this decision . I would like to say three things about it, do not leave now, three months left championship where those who know me know that I will not lower the arms until the end to help the team achieve the goals this season. No what I will do after June 30, which I have clear is that when the season ends I need to rest . Wear four years without rest because of injury and then we’ll see what happens. Finally yes I would like to make an end of season press conference to say goodbye to all the people who accompanied me during these fifteen seasons that day and answer any questions you please “were the words of Captain blaugrana.

Thus, in June to Barcelona lose one of their banners, a player who based caste, and courage won the affection of Worldwide Soccer . Maybe that indomitable breed is to blame for his farewell, as Puyol has always wanted to be in the field and often has recovered from his injury sooner than expected. If Puyol had dosed their efforts, and if the club had known her crave stop playing, maybe today would not announce his farewell . What is clear is that the club lost one of its most important players of the golden era of the blaugrana club and his place will be hard to replace.

Puyol debuted with Barcelona’s first team in 1999 and has since managed to gain an impressive record as it has won 21 titles with Barcelona (3 Champions League, 6 leagues, 2 Spanish Cups 6 Spain Super Cups, 2 European Super Cups and 2 Mundialitos Club). Also, if there is anything that has characterized Puyol in his career has been his nobility. Despite its undeniable caste, Barca captain never had any attitude out of place in the pitch, but the opposite . If any Barca player that can boast manor and values, that is Carles Puyol.
