Seville -Sevilla vs Barcelona fierce duel should be presented this weekend in LaLiga . However, the international break delayed the match.
Sevilla vs Barcelona is one of the matches of the fourth week of LaLiga 2021/2022. Los Rojiblancos will host the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday (11/9/2021) evening local time or Sunday morning WIB.
Unfortunately, the scheduling of the match was only 1.5 days after the completion of the 2022 World Cup Qualification match in the CONMEBOL zone , Thursday (9/9) evening local time or Friday (10/9) morning WIB.
That means the Barcelona and Sevilla players who appeared in that match did not have enough rest. Because it takes a long time to fly from South America to Spain.
Actually there were no Barcelona players who appeared in the qualifier, but Sevilla had three Argentine players, namely Gonzalo Montiel, Marcos Acuna, and Papu Gomez.
In addition, there is also Villarreal which has several Latin American players who have to play a few hours before Sevilla vs Barcelona.
Therefore, LaLiga through its president Javier Tebas had asked the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to postpone the match. Moreover, Villarreal and Barcelona still have to play in the Champions League next Tuesday.
The request was rejected by the RFEF because they thought it was not a big problem that caused the match to be postponed. LaLiga has appealed to Spain’s National Court of Sport (CSD).
Quoted by ESPN, CSD granted LaLiga’s request to postpone the Sevilla vs Barcelona and Villarreal vs Alaves duels. Now the RFEF is asked to answer the CSD’s decision and find the best time for a new schedule change.
Pique had thought about leaving Barcelona after dating Shakira
Gerard Pique apparently never thought about leaving Barcelona . It happened in the era of Pep Guardiola , after he was in a relationship with singer Shakira .
Pique strengthened Barcelona since 2008 after being brought from Manchester United. This move is arguably his dream, because he was born and raised in Barcelona. In fact, he was educated by La Masia before finally moving to England in 2004.
13 years with Barcelona,Pique has achieved everything. At club level, he has won a total of 30 trophies. He is now the club’s vice-captain under Sergio Busquets.
Even so, apparently there was a moment where Pique wanted to move away from Camp Nou. That happened in the Guardiola era in the 2011/12 season, a time when Barcelona was at its peak in European football with a tiki-taka style of playing.
Since early 2011, Pique began a romance with Shakira . It was apparently viewed negatively by Guardiola . His relationship with the entrepreneur immediately changed.
Plus, at that time Jose Mourinho came back to the Spanish League to coach Real Madrid. Pique said the rivalry between Guardiola and Mourinho had an impact on the Barcelona dressing room .
Not only me, but the dressing room as a whole,” said Pique , quoted by Marca.
“The rivalry with Jose Mourinho was really exhausting. Pep wanted complete control over everything that happened. At that time I started a relationship with Shakira , and my relationship with him immediately changed. Now my relationship with Pep is perfect.”
If there is a moment where I think about leaving Barcelona,yes in that season,” explained Pique.
Now Pique is 34 years old, and doing well at Barcelona . His relationship with Shakira also continues to this day and has two children. He is still contracted to Barcelona until 2024, and has the opportunity to close his career with the Blaugrana shirt.
