Barca with Lucho ‘to death’ – Pique

Gerard Pique has given his full backing to under-fire Barcelona Coach Luis Enrique who he and his teammates ‘are with until the death’.

The former Roma and Celta Vigo boss has come under increasing pressure following last week’s 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain, which was followed up with a nervy last minute penalty win at home to struggling Leganes.

"When the manager arrived, we were in the absolute s**t and with him we won the Treble," the centre-back said at an event held in Barcelona.

"I'd like it if everyone looked back and saw all the work the manager has done with us. We are with him until the death. We're all together trying to overcome this dip in form.

"We can get through this; yes, we're not going through our best moment of form. It's been a month-and-a-half now without playing the football we like to play and the most important thing is to be recognisable and to get back to playing the way we like to play.

"We're still alive in three competitions and we have a chance in all three, even though it's true that it's going to be really difficult in the Champions League.

"But worse situations have been seen before and with this team we will try until the end. We will try to play how we know and I don't doubt that's what both the manager and the players want. We're focused on finding solutions."
