Gaby Milito officially retired from football at an emotional testimonial played on Thursday at Independiente’s Libertadores de América stadium. In his final game, members of the 2002 title winning team from the 33 year old’s boyhood club, Independiente, took a team of Milito’s friends.

The players participating included Barça’s Javier Mascherano, but that was not the only FCB presence of the evening, for a video was also screened that featured messages from Pinto, Iniesta, Piqué and Puyol, all of whom played alongside Milito between 2007 and 2011.

A serious injury at the end of his first season at Barça seriously limited the Argentinian’s contributions to the team, but he still made 76 appearances and scored 2 goals, playing his part in a squad that won every single major honour.

Message from Messi

Sources close to Gaby Milito revealed that Leo Messi, who is in Argentina recovering from injury, contacted the defender to wish him well on the night of his testimonial.
