Gerard Pique hopes Man United beat Man City to the Premier League title

Gerard Pique is hoping Manchester United beat Manchester City to the Premier League title this season.

The former Man united centre-back was brought by Pep Guardiola in 2008 at Barcelona and saw massive success under the City manager.

He arrived at Old Trafford as a 17-year-old in 2004 and only managed 23 appearances before he left for the Camp Nou, however he insists his allegiance will always be with United.

“Between Pep and United, I go for the latter,” told Marca.

“I had some really good years there and I’ve always considered it as a second home.

“I’ll always be more of a Red Devil, although I have to admit that I follow City fondly because there are people there I know, like Txiki [Begiristain, City director of football], who helped me come to Barcelona, and teammates like [Jesus] Navas and [David] Silva.”

He spent four years at Old Trafford after failing to become a first-team regular under Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, even though has has now made over 300 appearances for the Catalan giants, it’s brilliant to hear he still prefers Mourinho’s side.
