Emotional, in this way the last days of Gerard Piqué as a professional footballer could be described. In fact, FC Barcelona published this week the official photo of the squad for the 2022/23 season, in which the Catalan center-back takes center stage due to his curious and particular gesture.

Of all the footballers that appear in the bottom row of the photo, Piqué is the only one who is not with his hands on his knees. As in the first official photo of the club, the center-back joined his index fingers and thumbs, thus imitating the same sign that Neymar and Ronaldinho made at the time.

The reason or origin of this sign is unknown; neither if it is chance or premeditation. However, in some countries, this position of the hands represents the shape of a vagina.

When Ronaldinho and Neymar did it in 2006 and 2015, respectively, the season ended in the best possible way for Barcelona. However, that cabal did not work for Piqué when he did it in the 2021/22 campaign, given that the squad was left empty-handed.

Gerard Piqué will play his last game as a professional player this Saturday at the Camp Nou, where Barcelona will host Almería for date number 13 of the Santander League. At the moment, those led by Xavi Hernández are in second place in the standings, with 31 points.
