Gerard Pique

Barcelona and Spain Colossus


Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is convinced Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas will sign for his club one day. Pique, who was one of a group of Spain players to force Fabregas to wear a Barca shirt during their World Cup celebrations in July, believes his friend will play for the club sooner or later.

“Cesc will one day sign for Barca,” he said.

Pique also waded into the debate about the size of Barcelona’s squad, which was criticised after it was shorn of several first-team players for the 3-1 Supercopa defeat to Sevilla.
