Gerard Pique: It is my final decision
Gerard Pique maintains that he will resign from the Spanish national team after the World Cup 2018 in Russia. He would, however, have preferred that the announcement had come later.
Ten days ago, Spain defeated Albania and immediately after the match, Gerard Pique announced that he will be resigning from the national team after the World Cup 2018 in Russia.
-That is my final decision. I didn’t want to announce it at that time, but I was not happy with the stories that later turned out to be untrue, so I felt I had to, Gerard Pique explains.
Gerard Pique was rumoured to have cut off the Spanish flag on his jersey ahead of the announcement.
-It is about motivation. I did not have anyone. Perhaps because I had won so much at a young age, Pique said.
