I am Very Proud of these Players : Pique
In the end if the referees hadn’t been wrong Barcelona would have won. In the end it is all noise to cover up the usual issue, that Barcelona are champions, and to hide the merits of the players who lifted a cup in Madrid
I am very proud of these players.
It was goalless for Barcelona against Lyon. They made 25 attempts which went all in vain. Luis Squarez was not seen in his usual form . Suarez missed many Golden Chances . The Catalans could have easily won the match.
Whereas , Pique is thinking otherwise. He is thinking goals will come when required on March 13 at the last-16 decider.
Pique told the reporters :
“I am not worried, we have a lot of talented people up front and I’m sure they will end up scoring goals,”
“When you have a bad run like this one you can probably get a little obsessed. If Luis Suarez has shown one thing it is that he has a lot of goals in him.”
“The team leaves in good spirits generally. It is true we could not score or kill off the game, but it was played well and a lot of chances were made.”
