Barcelona star not worried about competition


Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has revealed that he is unconcerned about the possible competition for places next year should the club make defensive transfers.

Since Barcelona's 7-0 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals, there has been speculation that the Camp Nou outfit will try to buy Daniel Agger or Vincent Kompany among other familiar names.

Pique, though, is not worried about the competition that this would pose him in the heart of defence next season.

He told El Mundo Deportivo: "It’s normal for Barça to want to improve each year. We want to win everything each season and to do that we need the best squad possible.

"If the club thinks we need knew defenders, so be it. This season we have let in more goals than before and we need to improve."

Pique re-joined the Catalan giants in 2008 after originally leaving the club for Manchester United in 2004 and, since his return, he has cemented his place in the starting line-up for both club and country.

With Spain, he won the 2010 World Cup, while he was also part of the team that won the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine last summer.

Pique has made Barcelona appearances helping them win the 2009 and 2011 Champions League as well as four La Liga titles.
