Carles Puyol is leaving Barcelona
A more recent event this, with Barcelona icon and loyal 'skipper Puyol having this week announced his intention to leave the club at the end of the current season.
It is unclear yet if the battling, dominant but increasingly fragile centre-back intends to continue his career elsewhere.
If he does decide to carry on, we desperately hope he is able to put his knee problems firmly behind him. But how bizarre will it be to see him turn out for another club?
