Pique: 'If Koeman no longer needs me, I will stop playing football'

Gerard Pique (34) stops playing football when Ronald Koeman tells him he no longer needs him. The Barcelona defender said this in a conversation with Spanish internet celebrity Ibai Llanos.

Pique biography

"I'm still hungry, I want to keep playing," Pique makes clear in the conversation. He still has a contract with the Catalan club until mid-2024, but his future will mainly depend on Koeman. "The day I stop playing for Barcelona is the day I stop playing football. I will never play for another team. When Koeman tells me he doesn't need me anymore, it's over. I just want to commit to Barca and I wouldn't have the motivation to play anywhere else in another shirt."

Not even a dazzling offer could make Piqué hesitate: 'At this point in my career, money is no longer an issue. Being at home is invaluable. I have all my family and friends here and the club is my life. More money does not bring more happiness. We have everything here and that's where I find my happiness.'

Wijnaldum

In the same conversation, Pique also discusses the transfer summer of Barcelona. Where Sergio Aguero, among others, came to strengthen the club, Georginio Wijnaldum chose Paris Saint-Germain. And will Erling Haaland still come to Camp Nou? 'I have no idea. I wish he would come and play for us. We have big players to play for us, but that's a decision for the club to make. As for Wijnaldum, I didn't even know he was coming to us. The club doesn't let us know about negotiations. We must respect his decision. I have already played against Aguero in the Under-20 World Cup. We are from the same generation and I get on well with him. Lionel Messi speaks a lot about him.”

In 2018, Pique stopped as an international of Spain and so the defender will not be there at the upcoming European Championship. Partly because of his strong opinion about an independent Catalonia, the defender was often whistled by his own fans. Nevertheless, he wishes Spain the best at the European Championship: 'I have had great years and am proud of the successes. I've tried never to get a bad vibe with Spain. On the field, you eventually become more desensitized. You get a thick skin. At home I would get emotional and cry.'Gerard Pique (34) stops playing football when Ronald Koeman tells him he no longer needs him.
