Javier Tebas: “Gerard Piqué will be president of Barça, without a doubt.”

As it was communicated yesterday, Gerard Piqué announced his retirement from football.

In an interview with Javier Tebas that appeared on Mundo Deportivo, the current president of LaLiga revealed that he believes the 35-year-old will become Barcelona’s president one day:

“He will be president of Barça, without a doubt. He has three conditions for it: he has been at the club for 25 years, he knows the football side from the player’s perspective and he knows the sports industry from the businessman’s side. I’m sure he can be a great president for FC Barcelona.”

Tebas was asked whether LaLiga would organise something for Piqué this coming Saturday:

“We will certainly do something. I don’t think on Saturday, but Piqué deserves a tribute with more time and more thought.”

“I will certainly offer him to be an ambassador for LaLiga, as Puyol is, and I would love him to be one,” he added.
