The defense says if he was Madrid supporter, his idol would be Casillas
Gerard Piqué left Barcelona to join Spanish national team meeting to play two friendly matches. The radio station SER interviewed him and here you have his best statements:
Barça's current situation
"I'm in a good level, as well as the team. Apart from the match against Málaga, we are competing well."
"The matches are now box-to-box. We don't control the midfield like before, but our style is the same."
"We have so three good strikers that it might be useless to stay on the midfield."
"It was difficult to start the season, but every time we understand more how Luis Enrique wants to play. He is different from Guardiola, but his relationship with the players is almost the same."
"In my first year in Barça, I was the fourth center-back; Guardiola trusted me and I ended up playing always. I have always had a passionate relation with him, like any other player."
"I disagreed with Guardiola in some aspects, but this happen with all the coaches, it's normal."
"The normal atmosphere is the current one, not the one of a period we all know [some years ago, with Mourinho on Madrid's bench, with a lot of quarrels between Barça and Madrid.]"
"Los Clásicos are unpredictable. The half time was fantastic, because they were controlling the match."
"Before a corner kick Pepe asked me about my second son, if he gave me a lot of work home. Mateu [the referee] also asked me about that when Cristiano was attacking."
"If I was Madrid supporter, Casillas would be my idol. He should be an example for all the Whites."
"You never know, but I don't think I will ever play in Real Madrid. I'm Culé; Barça have always been everything for me."
