Last month, Pique and Shakira announced their separation after 11 years of marriage, with Barcelona president Joan Laporta now providing insight into the Spanish defender’s thoughts.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has revealed that Gerard Pique is’suffering’ as a result of his divorce from Shakira, but has backed the defender wholeheartedly.
After 11 years together, Pique and the Colombian singer announced their separation last month. According to reports in Spain, Pique was to fault for the breakup, claiming that he had strayed from the pop sensation.
However, despite new rumours that they were in a ‘open relationship,’ neither Pique nor Shakira have responded to the charges. With Barca and Pique’s pre-season training due to begin soon, Laporta has given an insight into the defender’s thoughts by pledging his entire support to the Spaniard.
Gerard Pique is Suffering as per Laporta
“Pique is suffering. As much as we imagine, we have in our imagination players with fame, money and everything we like, but they are people and Pique is a great person. He is one of the captains, he is lucky, and he has given a lot and he has to give us a lot,” Laporta said.
“And he has gone through a circumstance that is not pleasant at all, with children at a very young age and Pique deserves the esteem and affection of the fans. Do not pay attention to the news that tries to leave him as a frivolous man, without feelings and that everything slips away from him.
