"Players like Javier are not just symbolic or emblems who represent a club for many years, but are also real champions who will remain in the history of this sport for their behaviour, professionalism and obviously their attachment to the jersey.
"Pupi, a strong embrace and thank you for all you've done for world football. You are a legend for all of us."
