Pique insists Barcelona will fight back

Gerard Pique is confident Barcelona will recover from last season's disappointing campaign.

Barca were left without a major honour for the first time in six seasons this campaign after finishing second in La Liga, runners-up in the Copa del Rey and being knocked out of the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"I'm very excited. During his press conference he showed he has very clear ideas. He knows the place well and I think he will give us a lot. I'm looking forward to starting work under him," Pique said of new coach Luis Enrique.

"Barcelona have to be up there in everything, winning tiles and being amongst the elite of European and world football. We have the team, the coach...we have all the ingredients to get back there."
