Piqué continued to admit that the most difficult strikers he had played against were Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba. With regards to the best players he has ever played with, there was no room for discussion: “Leo Messi.”

“I like it and it is important”

When the session was over, Piqué explained how the experience had been for him. One of the things that surprised him was the curiosity of his Facebook fans; he was clear about its relevance: “I like it and it is important to be connected to the fans. You have to give them special treatment.”
