Gerard Pique has been happy to offer his thoughts on what Barcelona should do with Lionel Messi’s No. 10 shirt
and says he would like to see the iconic number used this season.
The No.10 has not yet been worn by a Barcelona player yet
either in preseason or during Sunday’s opening La Liga game against Real Sociedad
but could still be handed to a first-team player for the new campaign.
Pique spoke about the issue on Twitch after Barca’s 4-2 win over Real Sociedad on Sunday and feels the iconic number should be used by the Catalan giants despite the pressures it may bring, as reported by ESPN Argentina.
“Someone will have to wear the 10. I told Kun [Aguero] to put it on, but he doesn’t see this idea very clearly,” he said.
“Wearing this number on the back is very cool, but very complicated as well because of it’s history and such.”
SERGIO AGUERO is a good friend of Lionel Messi and previously wore the No. 10 shirt at former club Manchester City.
However, he looks set to wear the No. 19 shirt at Barcelona if leaked images of a photoshoot are anything go by.
The Argentine is not expected to make his debut for Barcelona until November.
The forward suffered a calf injury during pre-season which has ruled him out for 10 weeks.

Pique Excited By Barcelona Future
Pique also spoke about the exciting youngsters coming through Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy.
The central defender believes the players can offer the club a bright future and lift some of the gloom following Lionel Messi’s shock exit.
“You have to put a lot of work in the academy,” he explained, “Especially at Barca, our past results show us that.
And now there’s a great upcoming generation. Gavi, Nico
Demir, Riqui, Pedri (who isn’t from the academy but is very young), Ansu, Araujo, Eric… They’re very good.”
