Gerard Pique

Barcelona and Spain Colossus


Barcelona defender Gerrard Pique has said that he is enjoying life at the Catalan club. Piqué is the rare central defender who has the chance to become a breakout global sports star. He’s good at what he does. He wins. He even scores a few goals. And away from the field he’s a handsome guy who gives interesting interviews in Spanish, Catalan and, yes, English, as I found out when we spoke for half an hour on Tuesday.

Gerrard Piqué touched on a number of topics, including how to defend Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the differences between Sir Alex Ferguson and Pep Guardiola, the success of Barcelona’s La Masía youth academy and the current Barça team’s chances of becoming the greatest club team of all time.
