Gerard Piqué Bernabéu (Catalan: [ʒəˈɾart piˈke βərnəˈβeu], Spanish: [ɟʝeˈɾar piˈke βernaˈβeu]; born 2 February 1987) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a centre-back for Barcelona and the Spain national team.
A product of Barça’s cantera, La Masia, Piqué initially left the club for Manchester United in 2004, where he remained for four years, before returning to Barça under Pep Guardiola’s leadership, helping the club win trebles in 2008–09 and 2014–15.
He is one of four players to have won the UEFA Champions League two years in a row with different teams, the others being Marcel Desailly, Paulo Sousa and Samuel Eto’o.
Piqué has also represented Spain, making his debut on 11 February 2009. He played an integral role in the Spain team that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2012.
Piqué was raised in a Catalan family. His father, Joan, is a businessman, and his mother, Montserrat, is the director of a spinal injuries hospital in Barcelona. He has a younger brother, Marc.
His grandfather, Amador Bernabeu, is a former vice-president of Barcelona. During the controversial 2017 independence referendum in Catalonia, he was seen by many as one of the public faces of the Catalan side of the argument, voting and tweeting his support in Catalan.
He subsequently faced backlash from some Spanish fans for his support of the Catalan independence referendum.
Since early 2011, Piqué has been in a relationship with Colombian singer Shakira. They met when he appeared in the music video for her single “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)”, the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Piqué and Shakira share the same birthday but she is 10 years his senior. The couple have two children, Milan and Sasha.
Piqué was the face of Mango’s men’s line HE for four consecutive campaign seasons between 2011 and 2012. In 2012, he lent his voice to the Catalan version of The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! as the Pirate King
