Gerard Pique and his club agreed together on his salary cut.

Gerard Pique received applause from the Spanish soccer world on Sunday after it was revealed he suffered a pay cut that saw Barcelona register Memphis Depay, Eric Garcia and Rey Manaj for the opener of Barça in La Liga against Real Sociedad. After beating La Real 4-2, with Pique himself scoring the game’s first goal, the Spanish defender took part in a chat with popular YouTuber Ibai Llanos on Twitch.

« The beginning of a new era »

« From day one we were very open to it. We got along and made it easy, » Pique said of his pay cut. “For the sake of timing we decided I had to go first. There are some misunderstandings and I want this to be clear. I want people to be with the team and help us all. The people who are totally aligned with the club so we can get out of this situation. It’s the start of an era without Leo Messi, but we’re going to have a lot of positive emotions. Nothing will ever be the same again, but we have the team to make people happy, to fight until the end of the season. Today is the first step. Little by little, the supporters will line up behind the team. «
