“Coming from where we come from, it was very important to get into the fight for the League today”

Gerard Piqué showed his face in one of Barça’s most complicated weeks. The central defender reappeared in the duel against PSG conceding a win and this Sunday against Cádiz they lost two fundamental points due to a silly penalty from Lenglet with the prescribed time fulfilled. The defender had hopes of being able to fight to win the League.

«It hurts, what happened to us hurts a lot. After Atlético’s defeat we had a chance to get in there. A game has been played in which we have had many occasions. They have not had clear chances. In a play like this, a penalty in 90, is very difficult for us. Coming from where we come it was very important today to get into the fight for the League. Every game that you don’t win, your options are reduced, “said Piqué in a rather pessimistic speech.

The culé expressed that there is life in the fight for the domestic championship. «There is an important distance in the League, but it is not impossible. It depends a lot on us and we have to take a good dynamic of the game. We have options, because it is difficult. We have to try. It is a hard blow, more where we come from. You have to watch game by game. League remains, but we did not expect this »he added.

On the other hand, Piqué believes that Barça is not ruled out for any title, although he acknowledges the difficulty. “The objectives are alive all three, but being realistic all three are very complicated. The Champions League is very difficult to come back, in the Cup we will have some option and in the League we will see. The others can already be losing that if we do not improve we cannot win. We have to improve emotionally, “he added.

Finally, the player explained his express recovery from the knee injury that kept him in dry dock for two months. “I am a bit tired, but very satisfied to be back so soon. Little by little I am recovering sensations and the games will allow me to improve until the end of the season, “he settled.
