There were all smiles around the Barcelona dressing room after a swashbuckling European win on Thursday, feels good to say that. The good moods included Gerard Pique, who netted a goal in the win and was joyous about his goalscoring ability after the game.
“I always say if I was a striker I would score 15 or 20 goals a season. But the truth is I have also had a great time at the back! It’s hard to win away in Europe and also the team not been competing at the level a club like Barca should be.”
“We have gone back to our origins, something we maybe had stopped doing recently. It’s a message for everyone, for us and for people outside, that little by little we’re coming back.”

I’d give Pique 7-10 goals if he were a striker, too slow for the position. Maybe a Peter Crouch sort of attacker.
