Gerard Pique believes the future is bright under Xavi.
The Spanish defender just turned 35 in February and is still an integral member of Barcelona under Xavi.
His contract with Barcelona expires in the summer of 2024 and made his 600th appearance for the Catalan giants this weekend against Osasuna.
He is the fifth player in Barcelona history to achieve this feat and joins Lionel Messi, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets in the 600 club.
“More than the number of games, it’s my career, having had such fun. I am very proud to wear this shirt and I hope to continue doing so for some time,” Pique said.
“I was very lucky to be part of a unique generation of footballers, and to be part of what we’ve done together and the trophies we’ve won for this club. Because of that we’ve had long careers.
“I don’t know how many games I’ll end up playing, but being up there with people like Messi , Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets… It shows how well we have all done as a team, as a generation, and I hope to get to play a lot more games.”
