Barcelona defender Gerard Pique admits he's had a tough campaign.

Pique struck in victory over Real Mallorca on the weekend.

"More than anything else, I'm sticking with my overall game over the goal, with how I feel personally. The most decisive part of the season is here and I hope I can help," said the defender.

"It's been a complicated year. I started with an injury and it was difficult to plug into the team dynamic. When I was on the bench, it's because my teammates were playing better than me."
