Gesture Policy. The Barça announced yesterday that it has been able to enroll Memphis, Eric Garcia Y King Manaj thanks to Pique, who has accepted a considerable reduction in his salary. Once again, then, Piqué has put himself in the center of the Barça stage. A boat soon, it is easy to think of a move towards the gallery. In the eyes of the partner, Piqué will be better seen this afternoon in the debut against the Real. But if something cannot be discussed with Piqué, it is that, in addition to being a player, he is a base culé and, as such, he knows perfectly the sadness that floods the fans for Messi’s goodbye and, above all, for the assumption of that Barça is no longer the benchmark for world football. It is the moment of gestures, and this is one. Nobody knows how much a pay cut influences Piqué’s day-to-day life. Maybe more than a millionaire is supposed to be. A few families live in Piqué and companies have to be fed. But this is not the point. This is a way, in a sentimental way, of putting oneself on the side of the fans, of trying to row in some way so that Barça does not fall, now that in addition to the economic ruin, the first inspection of Laporta’s work appears, which has ended badly with Messi and has observed since his vacation in Ibiza the first lashes of Font, Minguella and even a surprising Bartomeu, who has felt strongly to send him a letter after setting fire to the club and running away.
Paradigm. Piqué has been very close to Laporta in recent months. In Barcelona they met some dinners with the current president before the elections and, in the middle of the campaign, he threw him in the face of Victor Font use one of their tweets to publicize their slogan of Yes to the future. Knowing the size of the character, Font was forced to withdraw it. Due to his genialoid point, Piqué is a contradictory character. In their behaviors and in their statements. This time, however, he has exercised from consistency. He himself has admitted that the players had too much power. Deep down, it could make sense. In football, the changing rooms become untouchable and millionaires when they win. In Piqué’s gesture, as in Laporta’s attempt to impose himself now on players like Sunrise or in his final anger with Messi’s father, there is the recognition that certain things must return to his order. It is time for the Barça dressing room to be less rich and lose certain privileges. At least until I win again. Perhaps that is the background of Piqué’s gesture.
