The defender said he agrees with the league’s desire to conclude the ongoing season, but also noted that players need time to adjust after the long break.
“I understand La Liga’s [desire] to try and finish the season because there is a lot at play,” Pique told Movistar as reported by ESPN
“We don’t like playing without supporters, but ending the campaign without playing any more games, even though we are top, would be ugly. It makes sense what La Liga is doing.
“But we have been stopped for a long time now without being able to play friendlies. And with just one month of training, I would tell [La Liga] it wouldn’t be a bad thing to give us a few more days to avoid injuries and ensure we’re better prepared,” he concluded
Barcelona tops the la Liga table with 2 points ahead of rival Real Madrid, with 11 rounds of matches to be played, before the league was suspended.
