Shakira names Pique as best centre-back in the world


Popular pop singer, Shakira, has named Barcelona defensive, Gerard Pique, as the best centre-back in the world.

She made this known after Pique directed Barcelona to beat Real Madrid 4-0 in a LaLiga El Clasico on Sunday.

The two goals of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a strike each from Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres guaranteed Barcelona won Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

In a tweet on her Twitter handle, she wrote at the end of the match: “Gerard won’t let me say these things publicly.

“But only he with his heroism can play like this, overcoming any injury or pain and always giving his best. It’s not because he’s my husband, but he’s the best center back in the world. I said!”

Shakira, who is a Colombian singer has been in a relationship with Pique for over a decade and they both have been blessed with two kids together – Milan and Sasha.
