Barcelona defender Pique: I learned from last season

Gerard Pique admits controversy last season did unsettle him at Barcelona.

The defender struggled for form last term, though is now back to his best.

"The best thing for a defender is that nobody even talks about you - when rumours start, it's always uncomfortable. That's part of the game though and I have learnt from it. Now I give more value to feeling good. When I came to Barça, everything went so well and it all seemed so easy, but when things go wrong, it helps you to value what you have and become a better player," he said.
