The former defender spoke openly in a streaming with Ibai Llanos and revealed his adventures from when he played at Zaragoza at the age of 19
Gerard Piqué was one of the best defenders of the last 20 years, a multiple champion with Barcelona and a World Cup winner with the Spain national team. However, the center also made headlines in continued for extra-sports issues: from his nose for business (he created and manages the Kings League, the successful 7-a-side football tournament with heterodox rules) to his relationship problems, which led to the scandalous separation from Shakira, with versions of multiple infidelities involved.
In a joint broadcast with the influencer Ibai Llanos, the 36-year-old former footballer revealed details of his mischievousness at the beginning of his career, when he was 19 and playing for Zaragoza. It was there that, on loan from Manchester United, he gained continuity and showed all his virtues, both on the mark and on the way out. Although judging by his words, he also took his licenses, which did not make a dent in his performance.
In Zaragoza there was a hidden place, a small bar, there in the little corner. No one was seeing you. It was called The Buscón, I don’t know if it still exists. The Buscón. You don’t know what it was,” introduced the former sportsman turned businessman (his firm, Kosmos, came to be in charge of the Davis Cup format). “I was a DJ and everything,” he said, surprised with his versatility.
“Then The Busker… the owner was Gerard Pique Bernabeu, right?”, he was goaded by Llanos, who did not expect his interlocutor to double down on the bet. “I was the owner, but from behind. He wasn’t showing his face, he wasn’t the front man, he was someone else and I was in the back. He was serving drinks… he did everything there”” he added, with a longing tone.
