It’s safe to say one of the weaknesses of Barcelona this year is its defensive core. The interchanging pieces haven’t been there and the consistency of play has been absent.
Part of that reason has been injuries. One of the most significant injuries, however you may feel about his play on the pitch, has been Gerard Pique.
The Barca legend has been missing in action since November and despite Barca’s turn in form lately, they could really use some depth at the centre-back position.
Barca Twitter posted a nice video of the old veteran spending his birthday in training. Hoping to make a full recovery sooner rather than later and get back to helping Barca on the pitch.
