Gerard Pique believes he has attained the goal he set for himself, and now he has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world.
The Spain international joined the Catalans again from United in 2008 and has been a regular since, he was a crucial part in their treble triumph.
His form was a subject of concern in the 2013-14 season, with the defender admitting to himself that his high standards has fallen.
The defender promised to rediscover himself and he believed he has done just that after he helped Barcelona to another treble again.
“I fulfilled the vow to get back among the top centre-backs in the world,” the 28-year-old told reporters on Sunday.
With his confidence in himself now clearly fully restored, Pique added: “In the future, I would like to be Barca captain.”
