Gérard Piqué, the Barça’s veteran fullback, once again got carried away in front of the club’s management, What was wrong lately !!!
Already highly critical of Barcelona’s management, following their elimination in the Champions League, Gérard Piqué has once again expressed his dissatisfaction with the way the Catalan club is run. While wanting to believe in a better future, the experienced defender has started to point out all the dysfunctions that have occurred at the Nou Camp in recent years.
“We touched the sky in 2015 with the victory in the Champions League, but since then we have continued to decline,” he began by lamenting in an interview with La Vanguardia. It’s scandalous for the club to spend money to criticize us,” he said, referring to the affair that shook the club in the middle of the past season. Jaume Masferrer, the company’s recruitment manager who criticized the players, is still working at the club. These words are not made to ease the tensions that exist between the board blaugrana and the first team, as the first Clasico of the season is taking place this weekend.
“If the players ordered, it’s because nobody wanted to do it”
Piqué also retaliated to the bad tongues that believe that players, especially the old ones, have too much power in Barcelona. “The president must be the first to command and then the coach over the players.
When that hierarchy is broken, things don’t work
If the players at one time 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 it was “cordial” but nothing more.
Finally, Piqué spoke of the new direction the club has taken 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 at the technical helm can be a good thing. There’s a good feeling with Koeman,” said the Spanish fullback. He’s very direct and the locker room liked it. The amount of work has increased. We started the season well, the loss of Getafe was an unexpected blow.
