Gerard Pique Claims Barcelona Would Not Win The English Premier League

Gerard Pique Claims Barcelona Would Not Win The English Premier League

He’s one of the best defenders of his generation and he’s been part of the most successful period in Barcelona’s long and glittering history.

So you’d think Gerard Pique would know a thing or two about Barca’s strengths and weakness.

And it’s surprising to learn that Pique reckons he and his double treble history makers WOULD NOT add the Premier League to their ever-growing honours list.

The Spaniard spent four years at Manchester United early in his career and won England’s top-flight whilst at Old Trafford, only to return to Catalonia in 2008 and form the backbone of the modern day Barcelona.

But in an interview with the Telegraph, the centre-back is adamant that he, Messi, Suarez and Neymar would struggle against the current crop of EPL teams.

He says:

I think that if Barcelona or Real Madrid goes to the Premier League then the first year of playing there, there is no chance of winning it.

“I think so, because if you go to Stoke, or other types of teams, then it will be really tough. It’s a debate – we could spend hours on it. If Manchester United or Chelsea go to Spain then the same. No chance to win the league.”

So, there you have it.

We finally have an answer to whether or not Barcelona could really hack it on a cold Tuesday night away at Stoke!
