Queiroz blamed for Man Utd losing Pique to Barcelona

Carlos Queiroz is being blamed for the Gerard Pique's departure from Manchester United.

The Barcelona defender felt he never was rated by the former United assistant manager, who favoured Jonny Evans.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson wanted Pique to stay, Graham Hunter told talkSPORT this morning, but the Spaniard was convinced he wouldn't get a chance with Queiroz involved.

Ferguson rated Pique so much that he wrote to the defender when he signed for Barcelona admitting he feared the decision "would come back to haunt me".
