Gerard Pique: our goal is to win titles, not break records

goal is to win titles says pique

According to Barca defender Gerard Piqué, “the great start to the season gives us confidence but nothing has been decided yet”. “The goal is to win titles and not break records.”

Gerard Pique has said that his favorite for the FIFA Ballon d’Or award has to be teammate Leo Messi and for the manager, Spain coach Vicente del Bosque.

“To score fifty league goals in a season is outrageous. If you ask me, I will say that Leo Messi is the favorite now,” said the Barca fullback.

“I would like Vicente to win the managers award because he has won the World Cup and has done a spectacular job”. “And when the press criticised him, has was faithful to his ideals”. “He has managed the players extremely well and he’s a 10 out of 10”, he said.

Gerard Pique didn’t make any distinctions for the Best Coach of the Year, an award that, from his point of view, should be granted to Spanish coach Vicente Del Bosque, since “both Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho have already won it”.

Talking about Andrés Iniesta, he said that “he could win the Ballon d’Or for winning the Euro Championships and that Cristiano Ronaldo had a very great season”. But the Barca defender reiterated that “Leo Messi is the one that has stolen his heart”.

As per normal, whenever Piqué gives a press conference, he doesn’t hide from any questions. Piqué referred to the challenge of the Real Madrid coach to the fans that boo and hiss at him. Mourinho said that if anyone wanted to boo or hiss at him they should do it half an hour before the Madrid derby when he came out onto the pitch alone.

“It’s his decision. In the end, it was his decision to go out onto the pitch and let people judge him. On the other hand at Barca, we take everything as it comes and behave consistently”, said Pique..

In any case, he assured that the Barca dressing room is not worried even if it is Mourinho’s last season as Madrid coach: “We must focus on our own game. What matters most is reaching the end of the season and seeing what we’ve achieved.”
“Everything else is out of our hands and it’s better not to waste our time with things outside of our control.”

Gerard Pique believes that the advantage in points allows Barcelona to be less tense but at the same time, not relaxed. “The goal is not to beat records. The goal is to win titles,” he said at a press conference. From his point of view, nothing has been decided in La Liga title chase.

“The good start to the season gives us confidence but nothing has been decided yet,” he said. One of the keys to the extraordinary figures Barca has notched up in these first few months of competition has been Tito Vilanova. “He’s doing a great job and he’s very brave. After all he has been through, this should be child’s play for him,” said the defender.

It doesn’t last forever though, Pique warned: “We must learn to live in this euphoria but at the same time be prepared for when we don’t win everything.”
