What did Gerard Pique do?

Gerard Pique managed to again hit headlines as he accidentally revealed ex-Barcelona teammate Bojan Krkic’s retirement plans before Bojan could announce it publicly himself.

Pique was involved in a heavy discussion about the King’s League, which was also being streamed live on Twitch. Boajn himself was part of the Twitch stream. Another member of the discussion and Spanish internet celebrity Ibai Llanos commented that Bojan didn’t look too happy.

Pique quickly blurted out, “Bojan is saying goodbye on Thursday, he’s retiring at Camp Nou. I’m going to the event.”

The statement took everyone by surprise and everyone went silent for a while. It was soon evident that Pique was not supposed to have said that.

Who is Bojan Krkic?

Bojan was an ex-Barca player who came through the ranks of La Masia. He won the Spanish league title four times and the Champions League twice during Barcelona’s golden period between 2008-2011. Once touted as Lionel Messi’s replacement, he failed to live up to expectations.

He even played in the Premier League when he joined Stoke City after failing to be an impact at Barca. His most recent playing club was the Japanese club Vissel Kobe where even Barca legend Andres Iniesta plays. However, he was released in December 2022.

Bojan has been involved in other pursuits since then. He has fallen in love with a new sport- gravel cycling though he hasn’t announced his decision to retire from football at all.
