Shakira greeted her partner Gerhard Pique as ‘the best centre-back in the world’ after the Spanish legend helped Barcelona win an emphatic victory over real Madrid.

The Blaugrana Won 4-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday evening thanks to a brace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and goals from Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres. The result extended Barca’s winning streak league to five games and maintained his undefeated record in 2022.

Xavi has come a long way in overcoming the defensive weaknesses that were commonplace under its predecessor, Ronald Koeman, and his side have conceded just once in their last four top-flight games. Pique, 35, has been central to that resurgence and has resumed his best form after a difficult series of seasons at the Camp Nou.

The veteran has made 35 appearances in all competitions this season and was delighted to have kept a clean sheet against bitter rivals Real Madrid. There were concerns over Pique’s fitness after being substituted just over an hour into Barca’s previous La Liga game – a 4-0 win over Osasuna – but he failed in Thursday’s Europa League round of 16 win over Galatasaray and El be classic.

After the match, the world champion accepted Twitter to declare “We’re back”, and to sum up the mood in a jubilant Barcelona dressing room that hasn’t had much to celebrate in recent years.

An hour later, Shakira gave her longtime partner a glowing credit for playing through the pain barrier “with heroism” and putting his team first. She wrote: “Gerard doesn’t let me say these things publicly. But only he with his heroism can play like this, overcoming any injury or pain and always doing his best. It’s not because he’s my husband, but he’s the best central defender in the world. I said!”

Barcelona vice-captain Pique and Colombian pop star Shakira, 45, have been together since early 2011 and have two children.

Meanwhile, despite the victory’s dominant lead, Xavi explained that it wasn’t a perfect second-half defensive display from Pique and his colleagues. After the game, the former midfielder said: ” Today we were 4-0 ahead, but you have to run, help the full-backs, push… Today it was 4-0, but in another game it could be 1-0 and losing the ball could cost you. A football match lasts 90 minutes.

“I get really angry when we lose the ball. You can lose the ball in the last third but not in your own half. That’s why. If you drop the requirements you don’t get results. We could have played.” better in the closing stages of the game.”
