Gerard Hammered was one of the four players that renewed. In this case, his agreement will be until 2024 and when it finish it be 37 years old
This Tuesday at night, the FC Barcelona announced the renewals of Frenkie of Jong and Clément Lenglet until 2026, Marc-André ter Stegen until 2025 and Gerard Hammered until 2024. Of all they, surprises especially the one of this last, that happened to finalise his agreement with the Barcelona club of 2022 until two years more. Something that means that the Catalan will finish his career with 37 years.
To day of today, Gerard Hammered is 33 years old and is an indispensable player in the diagrams of the FC Barcelona. It carries several years being the big leader of the Barcelona defence and will keep on being it during the four next, although with nuances. The two seasons that have added him in the agreement would go conditioned to the number of parties that played the defence, although it still has not gone out to the light the exact figure.
Gerard Hammered is one of the high index cards of the staff and from the club has found a shortcut to be able to adapt it to the context of the derivative economic crisis of the pandemia of the coronavirus. The Barcelona defence, of the same way that the rest of renewed, will compensate the descent of wage with more years of agreement what, to the practice, will be a postponement of payments.
In any case, Gerard Hammered always has had clear that will not be a problem for the FC Barcelona. When finalising the past season and after losing against the Bayern of Munich by 2-8, the Catalan offered to leave if his goodbye served to give step to a necessary renewal of the staff. When being a basic player, anybody inside the club dared to pose his exit, but he always had clear that did not want to be a problem.
"The agreements are to fulfil them. My intention is to arrive until the 2022, but do not have a ball of glass and do not know if I go it to be able to do. If I see that I lose importance or see that I am not to the level, do not have any problem in going me before", said in 2019, in an interview with Sportive World. If something has Gerard Hammered is that it loves to the FC Barcelona and knows that, if it leaves to be fundamental, anybody will have to say him that it go because it will do it he.
Leader inside and out of the field
It can like more or less his form to act, but the true is that Gerard Hammered is a leader inside the changing room. Of these players that always give the face so much in the victory as in the defeat, a captain without need to carry always the bracelet. Besides, it keeps on being the fundamental man of the defence and, to day of today, would not understand the saga culé without his presence.
