Gerard Pique: We Just Follow Lionel Messi
Veteran FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has admitted the team always look to superstar Lionel Messi in their quest for titles.
The Spanish international recently committed his future to the Catalan club with a four-year contract extension.
Pique, who has been an important ingredient to Barca’s success over the years, believes that looking to Messi for guidance has been key.
"The key of the best generation of Barcelona is Leo. We just follow him," he told Barca’s official website.
"If anyone has been very important to our winning all these titles, it's been Leo.
"We try to help him because he needs a competitive team to win titles."
Messi has been at the heart of Barca’s emphatic first half of the season, and will be looking to continue his form until the end of the campaign.
The 30-year-old has hit the back of the net 27 times in 32 matches for the Spanish giants, while he has assisted a further 12 strikes.
