Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has revealed that he and his Barcelona teammates are pleased with their start to the season.

Pique told Sport: "I had to take a lot of rubbish last season.

"Therefore, I am pleased with the way I have started the new season. I think I have been playing well so far.
