Barcelona have released an emotional tribute to club captain Carles Puyol, who is retiring after 15 trophy-laden years with the club.

The central defender made his debut back in 1999 and went on to make 593 appearances in all competitions, leading the Catalan club to the most successful period in their history.

However the 36-year-old is hanging up his boots after finally succumbing to the injury problems that have blighted his career in recent years. He won't feature in Barcelona's title-decider against Atletico Madrid this weekend, meaning he's played his last game for the club.

Tributes have been pouring in for Puyol, who helped Barcelona win no less than 21 trophies, and now Barcelona have released this emotional tribute to their inspirational leader.

The likes of Pep Guardiola, Andres Ineista and Louis van Gaal are amongst those singing the praises of the man they call 'Puyi'.
