Hard to solve Pique situation, says Busquets

Hard to solve Pique situation, says Busquets

But FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique insisted on Wednesday that it's "impossible" to doubt his commitment to the Spain team, allaying fears he could retire from worldwide football before the 2018 World Cup.

On Monday, [2 October] some fans urged the defender to give a step aside from his global duties during an agitated training session held in Madrid.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has been at the center of the issue from a footballing perspective.

Spain play Albania on Friday, before taking on Israel on Monday.

"It's not about me, I'm used to the whistling, even if it hurts, but I feel bad for my team-mates who have to live with this".

He said: "I have considered it [quitting] but after evaluating it, I think the best solution is to continue".

"I believe the people who boo me are a minority and I don't want to give them the luxury of quitting". I have fought for this team and they are like a family, the doctors, the players, the coaches.

"The first open training session was hard because obviously you don't like it when the people that usually support you are against you in such a way, with whistles and insults".

I don't know if Pique and Sergio Ramos have spoken.

He also rejected talk of a feud with Real Madrid defender and compatriot Sergio Ramos, his centre-back partner for Spain.

"The coach and my teammates have told me that they want me to be here so we're just focused on the next game, the objectives of the past year or so and we are almost qualified so we need to focus on that and the three points".

"We are focused on the important game against Albania", Lopetegui said Tuesday on Twitter.

"My relationship with him is phenomenal". But Pique refused to confirm whether he voted in favour of a split.

Safe to say, Pique is not willing to let the jeers and the abuse get to him and has also revealed he will not let those fans win.

Police clashed with Catalan citizens trying to vote in the referendum, declared "illegal" by Spain's central government, on Sunday.

He added:"Spain and Catalonia like a father with the son who wants to leave home". I repeat it is not my case. People don't oppose Spain and recognise it is full of good people.

"His commitment to the team has always been extraordinary".

"I have said it many times, I am very proud to be part of the Spanish selection and a group capable of winning all the titles here".

"What I'd like to do is take all of the people who whistle me at the stadium and bring them out to dinner".

"I realise that the booing by some will not stop, but others that are considering it, I hope they listen to what I have to say", he said. "Social media can be a very cold place where words can be interpreted in different ways by different people". My kids are Colombian, Lebanese, Catalan and Spanish. "I'd like you to see that". "I would lose fans if I answered that question".

More than anything he called for maturity from both sides, insisting open dialogue was the only way to solve Spain's "big political problem". "It's not right to think I shouldn't have an opinion".
