Gerard Piqué: "We are playing very well"


FC Barcelona players were pleased with the victory against Almeria as the team moved six points clear at the top of the table once again. Bojan Krkic netted both goals as the Blaugrana won 0-2.

Gerard Piqué stated that “the game that appear to be comfortable and without many problems can suddenly go against you if the other team score first”. The Barça defender explained that he was satisfied that the team managed to raise their game before and after the break. “Fortunately we have the three points and now we are again six points above Real Madrid. The thing about how far we are ahead at the top will be something that is constantly talked about throughout the season. We had a slight dip, but now we are back on form and we are playing well.”

Reflecting on Bojan’s brace, Piqué added: “He deserved that because he has worked very hard.”

Below is what some of the other players had to say:

"I am happy for Bojan and his two goals today."

"We are very fortunate to have Andrés Iniesta playing for us because it is very easy to play with him."

"We have won another game and now we have one left before the international break and we will have to keep on working."


"I am very pleased to have taken advantage of this chance to have scored two goals. But above all I am very pleased for the team because we have shown how good we are and that we will keep going in all three competitions."

"It was a bit difficult at the start at either end, but we soon began to play well."

"I am feeling very good about the time I am given, the training and about everything I am trying to do."

"I am not unhappy about the change because in the team there are always substitutions."

"We need to remain calm and have patience."

"I am pleased because to score each goal was pleasing."

"I have always said that when I play I try to take advantage of my chance and today I did that. I am delighted, but I am pleased because of how the whole game went and that we won the game."
