– Piqué is suffering. We imagine that players with fame, money and everything else don’t suffer, but they are people and Pique is a great guy. He is one of the captains, he gave us a lot and he can help us even more – said Laporta.

– He went through a not pleasant situation, with children still very young. Pay no attention to the news that tries to leave you as a frivolous and unfeeling man. Piqué deserves the esteem and affection of the fans. He is an extraordinary person who is suffering. And we have to help him,” he added.
Laporta hinted that the player will soon return to the pitch to participate in the pre-season with the Barcelona squad.
