Thank you Rafa!
Sad to share this news with you, it's official" Marquez is leaving Barcelona after 7 years and 242 games for the Club,
As official website report: 'FC Barcelona and Rafa Márquez have reached a mutual agreement to rescind the player’s contract, which was due to run until 30th June 2012.'
A farewell ceremony will be held in the Camp Nou this Saturday at 6 pm. Club president Sandro Rosell will represent Barça and the whole event will be broadcast live by Barça TV.
Rafa’s superb career with the FC Barcelona which he joined in 2003. As a Barça player he’s won four league titles, two Champions Leagues, the World Club Cup, the European Super Cup, the Spanish Cup and three Spanish Super Cups.
The 31-year-old Mexican international defender has played 242 games for the Club, which puts him eighth in the ranking of foreign players. He’s been a fixture in the plans of both of the Barça managers he’s served under at the Club, Frank Rijkaard and Pep Guardiola.
