Gerard Piqué on MSN: "They are one of a kind"

Gerard Piqué took part on a press conference on Friday at Barcelona's facilities and said he is in a very good moment personally. In fact, that shows on his performances, since Piqué has returned to peak form, one of the many redemptions stories among the Barça squad this season.

The center-back also commented on the chance of the club winning the treble, how good the trio 'MSN' is, and the Champions League Final against Juventus. Here's a few highlights from Barça's website:

The season

"I focus on stretching myself, of getting better, of helping the team as best I can. And that is shown by the fact that we are close to winning three trophies with just a few games remaining. When we win them, then we will be able to say that the season has been a good one. I am happy with the fact that I am enjoying the current campaign."

Possible treble

"We are fighting for the treble, but taking into account what is being said, I get the feeling that we have already won the treble. There is not much to go, but it is the most difficult part, we have to be united."

"What I want is to win the league as quickly. Let’s hope that it is at the Calderón."

"If we get to that point, it means that we have done everything very well indeed. I think people are behind us and are hungry for trophies."

Point in favour

"What separates us from the rest of the teams and what we have to value is the number of players who have been here for a long time: Xavi, Andrés, Leo, Busi, Pedro, Masche…We have been here for many years now and that doesn’t happen often these days. There is a lot of pressure to win trophies. Here, due to the Club’s philosophy, for the way of approaching football, people have to continue to have faith in these players."

Messi, Neymar and Luis Suárez

"When you win the main guys are the guys in attack and when you lose, it’s those in defence. I have never seen a front three like the one we have now. Recently, we have enjoyed to the full our strikers, but I say that for the way we play, for how they complement each other and how they have that understanding. They are one of a kind."

The Champions League final

"Juventus have had a great season and they deserve to be there. We don’t feel as though we are favourites. The final is 50-50 and we will do what we have been doing in the last few months. We have a lot of respect for them."

"Before retiring I would like to play in the final of the Champions League against Real Madrid. We know how hard it is to get to the final and for them to get there too."
