He is great but i think Barca would still be fine without him, they'll be good in El Classico.

No! Don't retire yet Puyol. I want you in the back lately so Benzema and Ronaldo can outpace you and score!!! lmao

This dude is what makes the Barca defence have its bite. He is basically barcas lucky charm, they have all most always won when he is playing. He keeps the players lined up and basically a great cap.
