According to Gerard Pique (34), the three other members from the Council of Council of the FC Barcelona Sergio Busquets (33), Jordi Alba (32) and Sergi Roberto (29) will forgo parts of their salary in order to financially support the financially struck club.
The other captains will soon do the same. For reasons of time, I had to be the first for us to sign up the players. The captains always had to make the adjustments used by the club. We are proud of this decision, said Pique after the 4: 2-Start victory against Real Sociedad San Sebastian. Already on Friday, Barca announced that Busquets and Alba are fully prepared for cooperation.
Piques salary was shortened so Barca could sign up the new entries Memphis Depay (27) and Eric Garcia (20) in accordance with the rules of the Spanish league. Both stood against San Sebastian in the starting eleven.
