Spanish La Liga

Pique Hits Back At Barca’s Critics

Spanish defender Gerard Pique has hit back at critics' suggestion that FC Barcelona lack squad depth this season.

Pique Ban Deemed ‘Unfair’

The Catalans lost out on the Spanish Super Cup earlier this month, but managed to kick-start their La Liga title defence with a 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao.

Barca's squad depth has been questioned following an injury to Dani Alves and the departure of Pedro Rodriguez to Chelsea, but, according to Pique, they will challenge for honours like they do every year.

"We have a team. Even with the injuries, we went to a hard ground and won," said Pique, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"Saying that there's no depth is looking for the negative. The world doesn't end if you lose one match.

"We've won five of the last seven Ligas and we're going for the eighth."

Pique Banned Despite Denying Verbal Attack

The La Liga champions signed midfielder Arda Turan and defender Aleix Vidal before of the league season began, but both players are ineligible until January due to Barca's transfer ban.
