Pique: We suffered under tiki taka Empty Pique: We suffered under tiki taka

Post by jibers Wed Sep 11, 2013 6:45 pm

Gerard Piqué has come out with some surprising comments in the Italian press this Tuesday. In an interview with 'Extra Time' – a supplement of 'Gazzetta dello Sport' –the Barça defender is reported as saying that "Barcelona was suffering under tiki-taka".

"We've had a number of years with homegrown coaches in charge, first Pep and then Tito and we tended to exaggerate our style of play to the point where we were almost slaves to it." Piqué remarked.

"Now Tata has come in from the outside. He has the same football philosophy, to maintain possession of the ball, but he also has other options and that's a good thing, in the sense that it gives us alternatives."

"If the pressure is on, there is nothing wrong with a long ball now and then. It can change the pace of the game and give you a breather. In football you have to keep improving and developing, otherwise you become predictable." he concluded.

go on google news and type "futbol sufrimos", you'll find quotes by nearly every coach in the past 5 days. Del Bosque, Oscar Tabarez, even Messi just in the past 24 hours.

Imo if something is suffering too much, too often. The best course of action is to take it to a quiet place and put it down hmm

at some point the opposition knows how to counter your tactics. what pique is saying that we couldnt counter that, we had no plan b. we only knew tiki taka. now, we are doing other things as well
