Pique In Favor Of Barcelona
Warnings have been made by Gerard Pique to Manchester City that it faces a threat not only from Lionel Messi but from all over the pitch of Barcelona. Pique is eagerly looking forward to his arrival back to England and mentions that Barcelona is just not dependent upon Argentinean player Messi, but also on the Brazilian striker, Neymar along with Alexis Sanchez and Pedro in the team.
A few people might have been stunned to see Cristiano Ronaldo lifting the Ballon d’Or trophy a few weeks back, but, Gerard Pique is not one of them. He had the expectation that the Portuguese superstar would grab the award this time around.
It’s the Barcelona striker Lionel Messi who had been winning this prestigious award since the last 4 years and he was a strong contender to win it again, but, that didn’t happen eventually as Ronaldo ended up getting a bit more votes than him.
Pique who has played with Ronaldo in the past when both of them were at Old Trafford said that he likes the way the 28 years old forward plays the game and he respects him both as a player and as an individual.
