Pique: This is the first time I´ve felt inferior to Real Madrid

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique conceded he feels inferior to Real Madrid for the first time during his career at the club.

Pique and Barca were outclassed by LaLiga and Champions League titleholders Madrid, who cruised to a 2-0 win in the Supercopa de Espana on Wednesday and a 5-1 aggregate victory.

The outspoken Spain international has won six LaLiga titles and three Champions League trophies among others at Camp Nou but he made the agonising admission as Barca struggle without Neymar following his world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

“The season is very long and there is room for improvement,” Pique said. But in nine years at Barcelona this is the first time that I have felt we are inferior to Madrid.

“It is true that they won the Champions League last year, but we came here and won not long before that.”

Pique added: “We are not in the best moment as a team or a club.

“We must remain as close as possible and try to keep paddling forward.

“It is important for us to live with the defeat and accept that Madrid were better.”

Barca – led by Ernesto Valverde – have the opportunity to bounce back when they host Real Betis in their LaLiga opener on Sunday.

Pique, really? The real truth is Barcelona have always been inferior to Real Madrid, we know you are UEFA’s baby and politics have helped you win virtually every trophy you have ever won during Loniel Messi’s entire career. That’s why the English Premiership will always be the best league in the world……
