Happy 38th birthday Carles Puyol Saforcada !!! [ 13th April 1978 , La Pobla de Segur,Spain ]

“If I look back and remember Paris or Rome, the first image that comes to my mind is you lifting the European Cup. You gave the honour of lifting the trophy in Wembleyto Abi, which just makes you even greater. My generation and those that come after do not know what the club will be like without Puyi in defence branding the captain’s armband and the number 5 on the back of his shirt. I think that nothing will ever be the same.You are unique; a one-off. I find it amusing when they talk about signing “the new Puyol”. They can look all they want, but i’m sure that they’ll never find it. ”

Dear blaugranas,
This year I have made a New Year’s Resolution. My goal is to help 100,000 Barca fans quit smoking. You have always supported us and now it is our turn to return the favour. FC Barcelona has created a special program to help stop smoking. Players, coaches and other staff members will help you quit at your own pace. We all want to help put out the cigarette! So join FCB iCoach now and the club you support.

Best wishes,
Carles Puyol.
