Puig and Pique had been close in the dressing room in recent seasons
The reaction of Riqui Puig to Gerard Pique's retirement, one of his closest friends inside the dressing room in recent seasons, was eagerly anticipated.
And the LA Galaxy midfielder did not disappoint with a post on his Instagram account with a clear 'message' following the criticism that Pique has received in recent months.
“Legend, thank you so much for these last few years," Puig wrote. "You are an example for all the Barca fans who have enjoyed all the titles you have won since childhood.
"How you allowed us to enjoy ourselves! Those of us who love and admire you are sad not only because you are leaving the first team, but also because of the treatment you have received lately. Good luck and see you soon!"
It is a message of support for Pique that has not gone unnoticed.
