The former Barça center-back highlighted Iñigo Mártinez that "he comes out very well with the ball, he has a very good foot and a lot of character", so he believes the 32-year-old Biscayan defender "will adapt easily".
"With him, the center-back position is going to be an even more competitive line, because there's Ronald (Araujo), there's Christensen, and Jules (Koundé) can play there as well. The team already showed last season that defensively it can compete at a high level and hopefully, it will continue like this," he summarized.
Pique has expressed greater uncertainty regarding the impact of Sergio Busquets' departure from the team. Busquets declined the club's contract renewal offer and will be joining Inter Miami next season, reuniting with Leo Messi.
"Until the competition starts, we're not going to realise what level he's going to be missed. Busi has been very important in the recent history of the club, because he is a player who went like a ring to the finger to the team for his way of understanding the game. And it is true that the pivot position is perhaps the most important in a team like Barça, because of the way we play," he reflected.
In any case, even without Sergio Busquets, Piqué believes that Barcelona can aspire to great things next season: “Winning LaLiga gives a lot of peace of mind and I think Barça has a very good team, very young people with a lot of talent and a lot of future in all positions.”">
