Sad but expected news as it has been confirmed that Seydou Keita will not continue at Barça next season. The 32-year-old has decided to continue his career with the Chinese club Dalian Aerbin who have offered him a two year deal. With growing competition for places at Camp Nou it is understandable that Keita has made this decision. He played 188 games for Barça scoring 22 goals and winning 14 titles, but more than that he has left his mark as a model professional and all round decent bloke.
Here are the goals from Barça-Zaragoza in October 2009 when Seydou scored a hat-trick and set up another for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Seydou, you will be fondly remembered. Good luck and hasta siempre!
