Barcelo, April 22: Barcelo on Saturday will deliver a gold shield to legendary Enrique Castro, known as Quini, in recognition of his playing career, his loyalty to the Catalan football club and his permanent emotiol bond with the fans.

This tribute will be held before the game against Sporting Gijon at Camp Nou on Saturday in week 35 of La Liga, reports Efe.

Barcelo president Josep Maria Bartomeu will give the shield and the former player will greet the fans.

Quini, 66, was a legendary striker for Sporting Gijon and in the early eighties signed for Barcelo, where he spent four years.

One of the most painful episodes in the life of the Barcelo player was away from the soccer field, when 35 years ago he was abducted at gun point by a group who wanted to prevent Barcelo from achieving the La Liga title. IANS
