Carragher: 'Barcelona should sell Gerard Pique ASAP!'

Posted 19 Jul 2018 by Sara Davidson.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher caused controversy last night when he claimed that Gerard Pique wasn't 'good enough' for a team like Barcelona.

'If I were Luis Enrique, I would be looking to off-load him as soon as possible.'

'It is clear that he is not happy at the Camp Nou and that he is not living up to the standards of the club. There are also rumours floating around that VfL Wolfsburg are willing to pay €48 million for him.'

'If I were Luis Enrique, I'd take the €48 million and drive him to the airport.'

The former Liverpool defender also went on to say that a team like Barcelona should not be giving into ridiculous contract demands.

'Let him go to VfL Wolfsburg. Let him be Dieter Hecking's problem. There's no way that I'd let him hold the club to ransom.'

The statements from Carragher come on the back of reports that the Barca centre-back had walked out of contract negotiations with the club.
