Gerard Pique: ‘Ballers and Books
When you begin your product shilling career as the prince of pastries, there’s only so much higher one can go. For Gerard Pique, though, his celebrity trajectory has surprisingly climbed from grocery store royalty to book author. All at the good-looking age of 23.
‘Viatge de anada i tornada” (In English: Round Trip) is actually not Pique’s “official” coming out autobiography (that was most likely ghost-written by someone else), though. In an interview with Spanish newspaper, Sport, Pique had this to say about what awaits readers:
It tells the story of a dream fulfilled. The adventures of a boy who above all wants to play some day in the first team of Barca. And in the end he succeeds, but along the way a lot of things happen to him, like having to go to Manchester United.
Nonetheless, he looked adorable at yesterday’s book launch press conference. If you plan on buying the book, please do inform us if you come across any chapters on his hot girlfriend, Nuria. With more photo proof, a girl crush shall most likely result.
One noticeable absentee was Eric Abidal, who tore his left thigh adductor. Which is pretty close to a groin strain, ladies. Godspeed, Abidal’s inner leg muskles. You’ll be sorely missed during this weekend’s El Classico.
