Barcelona's Pique warns teammates to put Manchester United away if given chance

Barcelona's Pique warns teammates to put Manchester United away if given chance

There is an experienced spine to the team that needs to be gradually replaced and Suarez has shown the clearest signs of decline out of those players, so he needs to be moved on over the next few seasons preferably selling him rather than letting his contract run out.

"You have to respect United for this comeback, for scoring three goals in Paris, for the organisation and fight in the team with so many young players and a new coach". Pique says he watched both games against PSG and urged his teammates to take the chances which come their way to avoid suffering the same fate as the French champions. The Premier League side's form has suffered since Ferguson's retirement in 2013 but Pique still believes they're England's best club despite now sitting sixth in the Premier League.

"We know Lukaku can do a job wide but, when you have someone like Jesse Lingard, with his athleticism, tactical discipline and defensive work-rate, it would be a waste not to use him". "I think [at Old Trafford], PSG played better".

"The supporters here are fantastic, regardless of who they are playing".

Pique only had good memories of his four years in Manchester, where he played alongside Solskjaer towards the end of the Norwegian's career. I left my family and friends to come here and I returned to Barcelona an adult.

'Obviously it's a very special game, ' he added. "He was one of the veterans and he helped me a lot when it came to adapting to the country and the club". Things aren't [going as well at the moment] but I hope they change and quickly they get back on top.

"Looking at the Champions League draw, if Pep Guardiola's side make the final, then I would expect Barca to be their opponents in Madrid, and I don't think they (City) would beat them", he told BBC. I've always said the English culture, we could learn a lot from them and one would be this instance'.

"To compare the titles won is something for you all to do". "That is not the case". We have to be on our guard and look out for set-pieces from corners into the box. So, there's no pressure.
