The Catalan defender highlighted the physical capacity the team is building up in the pre-season. Piqué, the player with most minutes played in these first games, rates the work as being very positive up to now.

A positive Gerard Piqué who wants to give his best at the top in both training and in friendlies gave a press conference at midday on Saturday. The Catalan defender thinks that the team is physically fit and that “we are working hard”. He compared this with the first few days of the pre-season when the players were notably tired.

This wears out the other team and they lose the ball quickly”. Piqué finished by summing up the last few days assuring that “the team is performing well”.

Wisla on Wednesday

Asked about the next rival in the Champions League, Wisla Krakow, Gerard Piqué admitted that they don’t know much about the Polish team yet but there is still time to study them. All in all, the Barcelona player is confident that the Camp Nou will be full: “The more the better for us and we have to get the fans behind the team from the start”.

Even so, the defender is convinced that the tour won’t affect them: “There are enough days left for the team to get used to the time change”.
