Barcelona defender Gerard Pique recognised after Sunday's 5-0 win over Levante that it's difficult "to start [seasons] like [before]" and declared that the day he doesn't enjoy himself on the pitch, he will quit the game.  

The centre-back, who scored the fifth goal against Levante, started the season slowly but his return to form has seen Barça collect three clean sheets in a row in LaLiga. 

"We're playing better football recently, conceding less goals and scoring many more," Pique said. "Now, we're thinking about the next game [Celta Vigo]. 

"It's tough to start like before, but the day I don't enjoy what I do, I will leave it. We hope to do a lot of great things with this great generation of players." 

Pique also spoke about the late loss of Nelson Semedo: "We came out with three centre-backs and two wing backs. It went well. Semedo's absence was a last minute thing. Without a natural right-back, we decided to play like this." 

The defender also joked with the Movistar journalist when asked about Messi and Suarez scoring 25 goals between them in LaLiga this season -- more than most teams. 

"And with me, 28 goals," he laughed. "They're the best attacking pair of recent years. Luis has goals in his blood and Leo, it's all been said before. We have firepower, we just needed to improve at the back."
