"Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it."
- J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

It’s been a tough ride for us, we have suffered so much over the years. But all this pain has made us stronger and better. What I love about this team is that in spite of the cruel reality we manage to survive. We’re survivors, we always have been. I love this team too much to let go of them now, I’m not moving. When I started supporting this team I made a promise to myself that I would love them till my last breath and here I am keeping that promise. Barcelona never needed me, I needed them. They have built a huge part of me. I love them and I always will.

Marc Bartra signed the deal that will keep the player at the Club till June 2017.

“I’m very happy. It’s a great feeling and I hope everything continues to go as well as they have done in my time at the Club so far. For me, Piqué and Puyol are my reference points  - it’s a challenge to me to achieve what they have . Establishing myself in the team is a big test, but I am getting there”

During this time in Barcelona much has changed, but the Captain is always the same! Eternal Puyol! Thank you!


My guardian angel.  The day has come. You’re leaving. Although it is life, it is impossible to imagine a club without you. If I look back and remember Paris or Rome, the first image that comes to mind is you lifting the European Cup. At Wembley you gave the honor to Abi, a memory which makes you even greater. My generation and those that come after do not know what a club is without Puyi in defense, with the armband and ‘5’ on the back. I guess nothing will be the same.  I met you almost 6 years ago. You were the captain of the team and I was young and coming to take on the world. From the first day we had a great relationship both on and off the field. By your side I felt protected. I knew that if one day I failed, you would be there to save me. You were my guardian angel.  I know that I will miss our talks in the locker room, your tips and especially your ‘fights’ on the pitch. You are unique and irreplaceable. It makes me laugh when they talk about signing ‘the new Puyol’. They can keep looking, because they will never find him. Thanks for everything, Puyi.
