Spanish publication Sport has revealed that Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has no plans to retire at the end of the season.

         The 34-year-old centre-back has once again been a key player in the team this season. After last season’s injury, he played almost the whole season until he played only 23 games, including all items.

         Pique has made 19 appearances so far this season, scoring two goals, and was previously reported to have decided to retire at the end of the season despite having a contract with the club until 2024.

         However, according to Spanish media reports, Pique’s representatives say the player has no plans to retire after the 2021/22 season.

         Pique has missed just two La Liga games this season due to injury. He will face a ban against Elche on Saturday after collecting five yellow cards in last week’s 2-2 draw with Osasuna.

Now 34 years of age, Pique is in the final years of his career. There has been some talk that he might retire given his efforts in business off the field.

Pique’s representatives say there is no thought of retirement next summer at this stage.

Pique remains under contract at Barcelona until 2024. And he will be hoping to improve his form under new boss Xavi Hernandez.

It seems the former Spain international remains committed for the long-term. Although he won’t feature this weekend due to a suspension.
