The situation 

The storm seems to have passed for Gerard Pique. After the commotion of the month of June, when it was aired that Xavi had told him that he would not be the undisputed starter at Barcelona 2022-23 ; and that he wanted him to be one hundred percent committed (“if not, you are of no use to me”), there was speculation about a possible departure of the central defender, who has always said that Barcelon will be the last team of his career and that he would not accept the role of Substitute a full course. Pique, however, begins his 15th season at Barcelona today. He also does so with the symbolic first captain ‘s armband while Busquets returns from his vacation. He has played 603 games with the club of his life and, surely, he is the best central defender in the history of Barcelona. However, he is now starting from scratch and without supposed privileges earned by the services provided. Having won it all, his status has been discussed in recent months to the point that he is going to have to make his place in the team. If you respect his 35 years and the problems he has suffered in recent seasons in his right knee and left adductor, he is capable of anything because due to conditions, quality, character and reading of the game, he is still in a position to give something more to Barcelona. 

The details

Xavi wanted to pique Piqué ‘s competitive pride, to make him wonder if he still has that competitive flame to fight for an entire season to become indisputable. At the moment, the center-back, who has been working during the summer at the Ciutat Esportiva , seems to have accepted the coach’s challenge. Of course, Pique knows that he will be under the microscope of the locker room, coach and partner and it will be necessary to see how he handles himself on that stage.
