We know Piqué is football’s King Midas. Everything he touches is transformed into gold, which is a bit scary. He thought about being a Barcelona football player when he was 10 and he got it, while his grandfather was a member of the club board. At La Masía, the Barça academy for youngsters, he was part of the best under-16s side in the club’s history along with Lionel Messi and Cesc Fábregas. They met again years later in the best Barcelona side ever.
When he emigrated to Manchester at the age of 17, Sir Alex Ferguson mentored his career; on his return to Barcelona he met Guardiola and they did not stop celebrating titles, a wave of victories that took him to the Spanish national team and victories at the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European Championship.
Piqué met Messi when they were young and again as an adult. He met Cristiano Ronaldo while he was at Manchester United. Ferguson, Guardiola, Messi and Ronaldo form a virtuous circle that shows everything Piqué represents in football. Can anyone even match it?
