Pique Set to Quit International Scene?

Pique Set to Quit International Scene?

The Catalonia Independence Referendum could see the retirement from international football of Gerard Pique.

Our defender has been very vociferous in his support for independence for the region and has suggested that if his support for independence is deemed a problem then he will retire from the international arena before the 2018 World Cup, in Russia,

Talking to the media, Pique has remarked,

'I think I can continue.

'But if the board really thinks I'm a problem, I will take a step back and leave the national team before 2018.

'There are many people in Spain who disagree with what happened today and believe in democracy.'

Pique is a veteran of international football having played 91 times for Spain but his vociferous support for Independence saw he jeered during Spain`s recent friendly international against Columbia in Murcia.
