Gerard Pique gave an interview to GQ magazine in which he says rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona is healthy.
"I like the battle and I think it's part of the spectacle. In a way it's the fun of the game. The Barcelona-Madrid rivalry is what has always made us be among the greatest," he said.
"I am clear in what is my way of being and behave according to it. I like to stir it up occasionally, it's not provoking just to provoke."
Pique also explained he fixed his diet to stay fit and healthy a few years ago. "When I playd at Manchester United I could eat a bag of Doritos or a pot of Nutella for dinner. Later I realised you couldn't do that, that physically you can't bear it and you get injured. Now I take a lot of care."
