Pique reveals that Barcelona's other captains will reduce wages too
Gerard Pique has reduced his salary to help Barcelona register their new signings, but the club's other captains will do likewise in the coming days.

This is what the centre-back revealed after Barcelona's 4-2 victory over Real Sociedad on Sunday evening.

"I felt it's what I had to do," he told Movistar, when discussing his pay cut, before revealing that Sergi Roberto, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba will cut their salaries too.

"I've been in touch with the other captains and they're going to take a reduction too.

"It's just a matter of timing. That's why I could do it first to get it done quickly and help register players.

"We're a family and the captains have been keen to do this from the first moment too.

"[Fans whistling Jordi Alba for not reducing his salary yet] might have come from a misunderstanding. I've been in touch with the other three captains, with Sergi, Busi and Jordi Alba, and they've all been keen to do this with the club from the first moment.

"But, they needed someone to do it officially already to be able to register players. I know the others are close to doing so too.

"Sometimes the information people receive isn't 100 percent correct.

"I feel proud of the other captains and I want the players and fans to be all together."

Pique went on to speak about the season in general and what it means to no longer have Lionel Messi leading the line.

"I think we'll be competitive and fight for titles to the very end," he stated.

"Not having Messi means we might not have the talent we had before, but the team has shown that we're all together, that we can score goals up front and that we're good at the back, despite what happened at the end.

"We're annoyed to concede those two goals. But, we played a good team, in Real Sociedad.

"I'm happy. I think defensively and offensively we were good. I think we're going to have fun this year."
