Piqué warns against losing titles

During a charity event, Gerard Piqué was asked about how the season is going and he replied by saying that the most important part of the season is coming. “The most important time is now. We have a series of tough matches including the Champions League quarter final. We know it’ll be very hard and we’re going to need to perform at our best if we want to win titles. We have improved as a team as the season has progressed and we’re feeling very confident right now.” 

Piqué urged the team to take it step by step and to give it their all during the final stretch. “Every month is decisive. We may not be able to win titles, but we can lose them. We have to go game by game, knowing that we can’t afford to drop points in the league and that the Champions League quarter finals are of vital importance to the club. If we don’t win any trophies, all this hard work will have been for nothing.”

BREAKING NEWS: Dani Alves signs two year extension!

BREAKING NEWS: Dani Alves signs two year extension!

It’s been a busy few weeks at Barça. With the transfer ban blocking the club from bringing in any reinforcements this summer, the Dani Alves situation was a lost cause between two stubborn parties. However, with last night’s announcement of Real Madrid securing Danilo for next season, who was supposedly Barça’s target to replace Dani Alves, the board reacted quickly and gave the right back what he wished for, a long and overdue contract extension. Despite the fact that Alves demanded for a three-year contract, the two parties have reached an agreement and the Brazilian will remain at Barcelona until 2017.

Check out the details of Dani Alves’ new deal right after the jump!

The value of experience

The value of experience

Gerard Deulofeu shone on Monday in the Spanish U21 team’s 4-0 thrashing of Belarus, sparking a wide discussion of the on-loan Barça forward’s merits and his future. Specifically, how he stacks up against the incumbent fourth forward, Pedro Rodríguez. Pedro has reportedly joined Dani Alves and Xavi Hernández in considering a possible departure this summer. In all three cases, there are arguments to be made for the veterans’ worth to the team, but also for giving the opportunities to younger players with potentially higher ceilings (and higher risks). But Pedro’s case, I think, and the tricky decisions Barcelona must make about him in the near future, encapsulates the value of experience better than any other.

Neymar not going anywhere

Neymar Jr. has no plans to follow the likes of Alexis Sánchez to England after the pair were involved in a friendly match at the Emirates stadium in London. “As for playing in England myself, I’m very happy playing for Barcelona and I still have a long road to walk here.” Neymar and Alexis have a good relationship, with the Brazilian saying, “Alexis is a big friend, and someone who I had the privilege of playing with at Barcelona. We used to get along very well on and off the field, so I’m very happy to see him so well at Arsenal.” Sánchez then praised Neymar for the happiness he brings to the dressing room, saying that “Neymar raised everyone’s spirits as he is a very joyful person, I hope he never changes.” Before adding, “His happiness is contagious and that’s something I really like. Regarding his quality, I cannot come up with something new. Everybody knows how good he is.” The Chilean concluded with a declaration of Neymar’s talent. “He dares to so some stuff with the ball no one would dare to that. That’s the beauty of football.”

Xavi returns from Qatar to questions a-plenty

Xavi Hernández returned to Barcelona today and, as expected, a crowd of reporters awaited him at the El Prat airport. The player, however, did not confirm nor deny his possible signing for Al-Sadd and maintained that he was only in Qatar for a short visit. The captain of FC Barcelona, who still has a contract with the club until 2016, said that there will be time later to discuss his future.
