“Karachi I look forward to seeing you all and I am really excited to meet all my fans in Pakistan at the one and only PSL final. World Soccer Stars presents a great opportunity to celebrate the arrival of football and from what I know football is the next emerging sport in Pakistan,” Puyol said.
Puyol spent his entire career with Barcelona and was regarded as one of the best defenders and leaders of his generation.
Referred to as the ‘wall’ by his teammates due to his explosive strength, commanding air presence, intense commitment and ruggedness, the versatile defender could play on either flank but really stamped his mark globally on the centre back position.
Other World Soccer Stars World, Ricardo Kaka and Luis Figo also congratulated the return of cricket back home and said that after cricket, football is also coming back to Pakistan in a video.
