Why I tweeted that Neymar will stay at Barcelona – Pique

Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique, has admitted that he knew Neymar was leaving the club, when he tweeted ,”he stays.”

Pique has been mocked for posting the caption along with a picture of him and Neymar, while there were in the United States on a pre-season tour,

The Spain international has now confessed that it was a last throw of the dice, as the Brazilian already told them he was leaving as early as Lionel Messi’s wedding on June 30.

“There was a group of players that tried to convince him to stay and the day I wrote the tweet ‘he stays’ I knew he was going,” Pique said on the eve of Barca’s Spanish Super Cup first leg clash against arch rivals Real Madrid.

“I knew it was the last shot I had, to use social media and public opinion to try and convince him to stay.

“It was to try and help this club, to try and retain a player that for me is unique, with unique talent

“I knew it would be very difficult because it was a decision he had taken a while ago and it wasn’t possible, but at least I tried.”
