Barcelona chief Amor: Pique inspirational for Girona draw

Barcelona team manager Guillermo Amor hailed Gerard Pique after the draw with Girona.

Pique has been criticised over his form in the early weeks of the new season, with many connected to Barca questioning his commitment. There's been complaints of Pique focusing more on his business interests than his football.

But after his goalscoring performance against Girona, Amor insisted: "The footballer knows what he's doing on the pitch, I'm stuck on Piqué, who has been very good at times, he has had to be very careful playing with a lot of metres behind (after Clement Lenglet's dismissal).

"He led the line well, scored the goal, encouraged his teammates and pulled the team forward."
