Despite being together for 11 years, Gerard Pique has revealed why he has yet to marry Shakira.
Pique acknowledged his relationship with Shakira and was asked why they haven’t married during an interview on Gary Neville’s The Overlap.
When asked, the 35-year-old said, “No, I’m not married.” “It’s her mindset!
“I enjoy where we’re at right now. We have two children, ages nine and seven, and we get along well as a couple. It’s OK that we don’t have to be married.”
Pique responded, “No no no, I would tell you!” when Neville quipped that his old Manchester United teammate had already proposed and been rejected down.
Pique is regarded as one of the best defenders of his time and a key role at Barcelona.
Although the Blaugrana have struggled in recent years, Pique remains one of their most experienced and dedicated players.
After a bad start to the season under Ronald Koeman, Barcelona has climbed to second place under Xavi.
Pique has 25 starts in La Liga and recently spoke out about the abuse he endures from Espanyol supporters.
He even claimed that being booed by Barca’s opponents is more enjoyable than sex.
Pique told The Wild Project during an interview: “Espanyol’s promotion to the first division pleases me because that is how we play at their stadium. I enjoy going there since I am constantly whistled at.
“The fans become much more enraged when you chuckle. Nothing else in the world compares.
I’d say it’s preferable to sex. It gives me much more pleasure than playing against Real Madrid.”
Barcelona will play Real Betis on Saturday night in their next match.
enmity between rivals Last weekend, Real Madrid won La Liga, and the best Barcelona can hope for is a second-place finish.
