“I spoke with Luis Enrique one or two weeks ago. He called me and I told him I had taken that decision some time ago and that it was a decision I had thought about a lot,” he told a press conference on Saturday, reports Efe.
Pique noted that his time as a defender with the national selection was “very beautiful,” since he had been with the team that won the European Cup and the World Cup, but now that’s all in the past.
“Now I want to concentrate on Barcelona. I hope I have many years here and I want to really enjoy them,” he said.
