When Josep Maria Bartomeu gave his list of untouchables, no one missed that there were several ‘sacred cows’ among the absences: Jordi Alba, Luis Suárez, Sergio Busquets … and Gerard Piqué.
The central defender does not have the confidence of the Blaugrana management, and now he will have to be Ronald Koeman and his new team who decide if the veteran ‘3’ culé continues to hold the status of immovable or is going to be one of those who falls into the presumable locker room cleaning. The new Barça coach already did it at Valencia, which earned him numerous criticisms outside but especially within the team.
Piqué is aware that he is at a delicate moment in his career. It is not the first time it has been singled out, and it is extra-football businesses the first arguments that appear on the list of criticisms towards him. At 33, he is aware that he is already facing the final stretch of his career, and while many see him as a perfect future president, others consider him absolutely expendable.
This fact does not escape the scouts of the transfer market, and the first offer to Piqué has already been leaked. Its about Fulham, who has just been promoted to the Premier League. According to ‘Líbero’, the team that trains Scott parker wants to strengthen himself with an experienced center-back who knows the English league well, case of a Piqué who was in the Manchester United three seasons although without much prominence before returning to Barça.
Piqué was the first to show his face after the Lisbon debacle, and in fact offered to go out if it helped the team to regenerate for the future.
