Say what you will about Gerard Pique but he’s never afraid to speak his mind.The Spanish utilitiy player and veteran Barcelona defender Gerard Pique admitted after Friday’s forbidden 0-0 draw at Sevilla that it will be “difficult” for Quique Setien’s side to hold on to top spot.
Gerard, the Barcelona defender is not one to shy away from the truth. It was he who memorably confessed after a Supercopa de Espana hammering at the hands of Real Madrid in 2017 that he felt the Catalans were “inferior” to their bitter rivals for the first time in his Camp Nou career. Hence, it was no surprise to see him admit immediately after Friday night’s dismal 0-0 draw at Sevilla that Quique Setien’s side face an almighty battle with a resurgent Real to retain the Liga title. “It doesn’t depend only on our results anymore,” Pique lamented, alluding to the fact that while Barca top the table, Madrid are just three points behind with a game in hand.
