thumbnail Hello,

The 41-year-old coach, who is stepping down at the end of the season, took some pictures with his nearest and dearest before finally leaving the pitch after his farewell game

Outgoing Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola afforded himself one final stroll around Camp Nou with his family after Saturday night's Liga clash with Espanyol.

The 41-year-old coach bid an emotional farewell to Blaugrana supporters just after the full-time whistle but then returned an hour later, after the crowd had dispersed, to take some photos with his family.

Goal.com was still present and can now share with our readers the touching images of Guardiola's final few moments at Camp Nou ...

1. Private party

Guardiola, accompanied by his wife and children, reemerged at 00.30CET and embarked upon a short stroll around the near empty stadium.  

2. Family photo

The Guardiola family were not alone, though, and the photographer they had with them took some pictures to mark the occasion.

3. Extended family

Moments later, some family and friends arrived on the pitch as Guardiola's time at Camp Nou, the scene of many of his greatest triumphs as both a player and a coach, came to a fittingly poignant end.
