After scoring his seventh goal of the 2018/19 season against Lyon on Wednesday night, FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is certainly in great goalscoring form and has in a recent interview joked about changing his position on the field.
The centre-back has claimed he is trying to convince Ernesto Valverde to play him further up the pitch. He also had some interesting points to make about Cristiano Ronaldo's recent performance against Atletico.
In his latest interview, Pique told Marca, "If I see Luis Suarez looking tired then I'll say to the coach to let me go up front."

Revealing his ambitions to play as a striker, Pique stated, "I hope to convince him to put me there. I can see when I have an advantage and when I have a chance to score. I've always liked to help out in attack."
During the same interview, Pique was asked about Cristiano Ronaldo's incredible heroics for Juventus against Atletico Madrid, but he soon shifted the topic to Lionel Messi as he said, "Big stars matter a lot, but they don't win things on their own. Having someone like Lionel Messi in your team gives you the important calm to be able to take on challenges."
Finally concluding by revealing his ambitions with Barcelona this season, Pique said, "We're alive in all three competitions, but it's too early to talk about a treble. We'll go step by step. We're in a similar position to last year and we have to learn from that experience. We have a tough match on Sunday."
