During Barcelona’s break from football, Gerard Pique decided to accompany his partner, Shakira, on a trip to her hometown in Colombia. The team’s last game was on December 21, where they triumphed over Hercules 7-0 in the Copa del Rey tournament. They won’t be back on the field until January 5, facing Atheltic Bilbao in the same competition. This break has given Luis Enrique’s team an opportunity to take a breather and rejuvenate themselves before a demanding second half of the season. Pique and Shakira chose to spend their time in Barranquilla, which is situated on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.
In this snapshot, Gerard Pique is seen in the company of his lovely partner Shakira and some close acquaintances. The footballer shared the image on social media to give fans a glimpse into his personal life.
During his recent trip, the Barcelona defender took a moment to sign a shirt from Atletico Junior.
The famous singer, Shakira, has been spotted donning the red and white striped jersey of a Colombian football club. She and her husband, Gerard Pique, along with their two sons, visited her birthplace in the northern city during the holiday season. The Barcelona central defender shared photos of their trip on his Instagram account. In one picture, they were seen with friends on a boat by the Magdalena River, while in another, Pique was signing an Atletico Junior shirt for a fan, which Shakira previously wore. Atletico Junior is a Barranquilla-based club that finished fifth in the Colombian top flight last season and has won seven national titles. It also played a crucial role in Milan forward Carlos Bacca’s career.
This pair has been in a loving relationship since the year 2010 and are now blessed with two adorable boys whom they named Milan and Sasha.
Barcelona’s coach, Luis Enrique, has decided to grant Pique, the defender, an early start to his winter vacation.
Pique, along with Messi, Suarez, and Neymar, obtained permission to miss the win against Hercules in order to start their break early. They are expected to come back refreshed when Barcelona resumes their season. Barcelona has upcoming matches against Villarreal and Las Palmas in La Liga, as well as a first knockout round match against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League after their game against Bilbao. While Pique is away in Colombia, Real Madrid, Barcelona’s rival, has already returned to training for the resumption of the Spanish season. Real Madrid currently leads the table by three points and has a game in hand over Barcelona. The two teams are set to meet again on April 23, so it will be an exciting game to watch.
