Gérard Piqué, the seasoned back of Barça, was again carried away in front of the management of the club.
Already very critical of the Barcelona leaders following their elimination in the Champions League, Gérard Piqué has once again expressed his dissatisfaction with the way in which the Catalan club is managed. While wanting to believe in a better future, the experienced defender set out to point the finger at all the dysfunctions that there have been on the side of the Nou Camp in recent years.
“We touched the sky in 2015 with the victory in the Champions League, but since then we have not stopped declining”, he began by deploring in an interview with The vanguard. “It is scandalous for the club to spend money to criticize us,” he bid, referring to the affair that rocked the club in the middle of the past season. Jaume Masferrer, the recruiting manager of the company that criticized the players still works at the club ”. Words that are not made to ease the tensions that exist between the Blaugrana board and the first team, as the first Clasico of the season looms this weekend.

“If the players were in charge, it’s because nobody wanted to”
Pique also retaliated against bad tongues who believe that the players, and in particular the old ones, have too much power in Barcelona. “The president must be the first to command and then the coach above the players. When this hierarchy is broken, things don’t work. If the players at one point had the power, it is because the others did not want to exercise it, ”he thundered. Asked about his relationship with Josep Maria Bartomeu today, he said she was “cordial” but nothing more.
Finally, Pique spoke about the new trajectory taken by the club with the arrival at the helm of Ronald Koeman’s team. Even though there was a setback last week against Getafe, he wants to believe that this change to the technical bar can be a good thing. “There are good feelings with Koeman, assured the Spanish back. He is very direct and the locker room liked it. The amount of work has increased. We started the season well, Getafe’s loss was an unexpected blow. Let’s see what will happen at the Clasico ”.
