Barcelona legend Nadal: Pique can still be valuable this season

Barcelona legend Miguel Angel Nadal says Gerard Pique can still be valuable this season.

The veteran defender has resisted interest from Atletico Madrid this week, despite being relegated to a backup role this season.

Nadal has praised Pique's attitude, telling Mundo Deportivo: "What happens with Piqué is not only a sporting issue but other circumstances have influenced him, but he is still a very reliable player.

"The important thing is that you have motivation and ambition. And that is very positive. It is important in a squad to have players like that. He has self-esteem and, furthermore, nobody can argue with Piqué or put a but to his sports career."
