Pique: With MSN We Can Sit At The Top

share on:

Gerard Pique is confident Barcelona will stay at the top, due to the presence of the MSN.

The triumvirate attacking force won the treble for Barcelona, with the Catalan club taking a new dimension under Luis Enrique.

And Pique is confident, Messi, Suarez and Neymar are enough for Barcelona.

“We have more options now than before. We still want to control possession of the ball and the rhythm of the game. I think we are always creating scoring chances,” centre-back Pique told UEFA.com.

“But I think that this new option of feeling more comfortable defending a bit deeper and playing on the counter-attack gives us the chance to score like we did at the Emirates for the first goal against Arsenal. That is a good example of it.

“I think this gives us something different that we did not have before. I remember it used to be harder for us to sit back and defend. We didn’t really like it and it made us feel uncomfortable.

“Now we feel more comfortable in that role, knowing that we have three players up there who are very quick and will take advantage of any counter-attack. We know now that with or without the ball we have options to win the game.”

Barcelona are on course to retain the treble they won under Enrique last season, sitting top of La Liga while also being through to the Copa del Rey final and the Champions League quarter-finals.
