This is long post, especially a lot of photos, but it's almost imposible to make profile of this player without photos;P I know he is idol to many young people, and I will not exagerate to say he is loved by thousands of teenagers. Of course he is goodlooking young guy, but for me personally his greatest advanteges are his skills. Many consider Gerard Piqué Bernabeu as best defender in the world, and what is more he is defender who attacks and scores.
Gerard Piqué returned to FC Barcelona, the club where he started as a boy, in the summer of 2008, after three seasons with Manchester United and one with Real Zaragoza. He was born on 2 February 1987 and since that day he has been a club member of FC Barcelona! His grandfather, Amador Bernabeu, is the former vice-president of Barcelona.
