Piqué: "Xavi-Iniesta-Cesc best possible midfield"

Barcelona player Gerard Piqué gave an interview to Spanish radio station Onda Cero. Some excerpts.




Cesc
"Of course I would do anything to have him with us. At the national team we have a great time with Cesc. A midfield with Xavi, Iniesta and Cesc would be a five-star midfield. You cannot find a better midfield."

The renewal of Messi
"The best player in the world should be the best paid player too."

His own renewal
"It seems as if everyone is getting a pay rise lately... Let's hope it's my turn soon."

Ibrahimovic
"It's normal that Ibrahimovic was a little nervous. He arrived at a new club, he cost a lot of money, he's a star. It's also normal that he still has to adapt to the way of playing, and a forward is getting confidence by scoring goals."

Chygrynskiy
"I'm not afraid of the competition, no. He's a great player. If they've signed him, if Pep has asked for him and has pushed so much to have him, there should be a reason for that. He has great qualities. He will adapt quickly."

Yes - my dear, dear Piqué - yes, you can. It's called Xavi - Touré - Iniesta and would kick Xavi, Cesc - Iniestas ass anyday of the week.

I agree,Toure adds another dimension in our midfield,cesc is more like a direct back-up for Xavi

skanjos said...

nope a xavi-iniesta-cesc is better m8.
and pique deserves a raise too,he was vital to our tremble and he should have a very small contract coming from man utd,also he was nominated as best defender by uefa with other 2 players,didnt win but i think he should have,vidic and terry werent that good last season while pique is a tremble champion.

everybody deserves a pay rise. That way it becomes impossible for us to sell our players when they get lazy again, because we pay outrageous wages no club will match.

Skanjos: It's TREBLE, not tremble, lol.

Who would play the dmf in the xavi iniesta cesc midfield. I see cesc as someone who could replace xavi when he gets to old.

Xavi-Iniesta-Cesc is going to be the same as Xavi-Iniesta-Deco. It failed horribly. It will fail if it happens again.

tech4me said...

FYI - should be "he cost a lot of money", not "costed"... and "he's a star", not "it's"...

MohamedH said...

I agree with creus... Yaya-Xavi-Iniesta is a better midfield than cesc-xavi-iniesta...

If this was the best midfield the national team would surely use it. However a DMF is needed (Senna/ Yaya), especially in the 4-3-3

in the future it will be
jonathan-busquets-thiago

mike in africa said...

xavi-iniesta-deco... those days :D they had a very similar style back then... especially deco n xavi, u mistake them from time to time, it's awesome!

sbah said...

Why not move Iniesta to left flank, while we play a Xavi-Yaya-Cesc in the midfield friends.

Anonymous said...

I agree friend sbah. It is the best option.

we already have da best midfield and tats why we jus won da treble......wake up ppl,,,and btw pique clearly deserves a payrise.

Bojanibra said...

yeah support u SBAH.iniesta-xavi-cesc can nmever play together,it would be horrible.toure is a non comonised part of barcelona.
so geri,never say this agian,its hurt players of toures calibar.

Toure - Cesc comparison??

Its like making a torned feather heavier than a big solid rock.

Cesc got qualities but lose his temper & nerves at crucial stages.

Unlike Cesc..YAYA..a great mover of ball..nice dribbler..nice control on the ball..calm headed..tall to block ball by head too..able to play as CB, DMF, ACM..been an integral part of the team..a bloke that moves entire team forward..and at times make brilliant moves forward himself with great control and scoring goal with his blistering shot.

Can you still compare the both?

YAYA all the way!!

Not to mention: His great game spirit and team spirit..a truely valuable player for us, a great asset to have.

I salute him!

Cesc will be Xavi's replacement. They could play together, but I wouldn't call it the best midfield.

jordy said...

if fabregas would come iniesta will play up front

Anonymous said...

Iniesta is not at his best when he is up front... Much rather keep him in midfield

bosnian_likes_barca said...

Cesc is a the best option for our middlefield, he can back up Yaya, Xavi, Iniesta, Henry, Messi and Ibra also, if Henry play CF. Cesc is option for back up 5 position, very young but very good and i can't see any player in the world who would be better signing. I think he will come next summer, with him and some world class winger and left full back we will have the best team in the world for comming years.
