Sergio Busquets says farewell to Barcelona after 18 years.
The veteran midfielder is undoubtedly one of the best defensive midfielders of his generation.
He was won three Champions League titles and eight La Liga trophies with the Catalan giants.
After starting his youth career in 2005, he made his debut for the first-team in 2008 and served as the club captain for the last two seasons.
The 34-year-old has made more than 700 appearances for Barcelona and holds the record for playing in more El Clasicos than any other player.
“The time has come to announce that this will be my last season with Barça,” he said in a farewell video released by Barcelona. “It has been an unforgettable journey. I always dreamed of playing with this shirt and at this stadium and reality has exceeded all my dreams.
“I wouldn’t have believed it you if you had told me when I arrived as a youth player that I would play 15 seasons at the best club in the world and surpass 700 matches. It has been an honour, a dream, a source of pride and meant everything to defend and represent this badge for so many years. Although it has not been an easy decision I think the time has come.”
