Victory over Real Mallorca marked the midfielder's final home game as a Barca player.
He declared: "I want to thank all the players who have accompanied me on this journey over all these years. To the coaches I've had, the staff, the workers. And also to you, the fans. It has been a pleasure to play here. Also, of course, to my family, who have always accompanied me and made me give the best of me. Thank you very much, I love you, you make me very happy.
"Ever since I was a little boy, I dreamed of playing in this stadium one day. Today we put a full stop, because we will once again have the best stadium in the world. We are the best club in the world, with the best players and the best fans. We will have a stadium to match all of us.
"I came to watch the games, I watched them on TV, I went to away games, and the feeling and the pride of being the best club in the world will never be taken away from me by anyone in the world. I am a member, also a fan. Now I'm leaving, but the dream I had as a child has been fulfilled and has improved with reality.
"To be able to be here and win so many titles, being so important and with the club of my heart. Finally, I would like to say that this is not a goodbye, it's a see you soon, visca el Barça i visca Catalunya".
