PICTURE: Who would’ve seen this coming from Cesc and Pique
When Barcelona were cruising the world of football, the idea of Pep Guardiola leaving his team in disappointment one day was unthinkable.
But that is now reality as the 41-year-old announced his decision to leave the Catalan club at the end of this campaign on Friday, leaving his once cheerful Barca dressing room almost in tears.
Already troubled by defeats to Real Madrid and Chelsea in La Liga and the Champions League respectively, here was the look on the faces of Pique and Fabregas – who once said Guardiola is his hero – as the Barca boss revealed his decision.
So what impact do you think this dramatic movement at one of the world’s biggest clubs will make on the game?
