Barcelona defender Pique enjoys Real Madrid dig: We never prioritise trophies

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has enjoyed a dig at Real Madrid.

Having finished last season LaLiga champions, Pique says there'll never be a case of prioritising trophies at Barca.

Pique said, "What we have to control is the expectation because if we are not going to, we'll end up hurting ourselves.

"Last year we won the LaLiga and there are people who were not happy. We have to have the goal of winning everything but having our feet on the ground, winning LaLiga is always the best goal, of course there is a desire for the Champions League, but we know the difficulty of this, LaLiga is the thermometer and I think it was a good year.

"We could throw the LaLiga and the Copa as some teams do and focus on the Champions, but we don't like to play Russian roulette but work from day one. Hopefully this year we will be able to lift them all."
