After the game against Celta Vigo in which the Blaugranas lost, Pique spoke to the press about the game and the error from Ter Stegen. The FC Barcelona defender stressed the team need improvement in different aspect of the game.
“We would have had a good game but there goals in the first half affected us. They interfered with our plans, they made use of the situation to their own advantage. It’s a big lesson for us that there’s still need for improvement. They quickly scored two goals within a short space of time. In the second half, we didn’t have anything to lose so we came all out on them and it almost paid off.” said Pique.
The defender commented on the absence of Iniesta in first half, “It’s not hard to talk about shuffling of players now, expecially after the defeat. The coach puts up team which he feel is the best, we cannot complain about it.”
Finally, spoke on Ter Stegen’s error in the second half of the game. “He performed very well tonight and a good number of our attacks are started by him. We all make mistakes, I hope he continues the way he plays. I’m sure this mistake won’t affect him.”
