Who is his father Gerard?
Spanish former professional soccer player Gerard Pique Bernabeu was born under the zodiac sign Aquarius on 2 February 1987, in Barcelona. He’s widely regarded as one of the best defensive players of all time, and although he initially played for Manchester United, he’s perhaps known best for the time that he spent playing for Barcelona; Gerard also played 102 times for the Spanish national team.
He was raised alongside his younger brother Marc in Barcelona, by their mother Montserrat who’s the director of a spinal injuries hospital, and father Joan who’s a businessman; Gerard’s grandfather Amador Bernabeu was once the vice president of the soccer club Barcelona. Gerard studied at a local high school in Barcelona, and upon matriculating in 2005 focused on soccer rather than enrolling at college.
He began his soccer journey at a young age, joining the youth ranks of Barcelona’s La Masia academy. His talent was obvious and he progressed quickly through the ranks, ultimately making his first-team debut for Barcelona in 2004, however, his initial stint with the club was short-lived, as he struggled to establish himself in the first team.
In 2004, Gerard was loaned to the Premier League club Manchester United; under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson, he performed well as a central defender. During his time at Manchester United (2004-2008), Gerard won several domestic and international titles, including the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League; his partnership with Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic in defense was amazing, and it was clear that he had matured into a world-class player.
Gerard returned to Barcelona in 2008, and became a vital part of the team; his play alongside Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano helped Barcelona dominate both domestic and international competitions. During his second stint at Barcelona (2008-2021), Gerard won numerous La Liga titles, Copa del Rey trophies and UEFA Champions League titles.
Gerard also had a successful international career with the Spanish national team; he made his debut in 2009 and was an integral part of the squad that achieved unprecedented success, playing a crucial role in Spain’s 2010 FIFA World Cup victory and their UEFA European Championship wins in 2008 and 2012.
In February 2021, Gerard announced his retirement from international soccer, having earned 102 caps for Spain. Later in August that year, he also retired from club soccer, although his departure from Barcelona was more due to financial constraints faced by the club rather than a lack of ability on his part.
Outside of soccer, Gerard’s been involved in various business ventures and philanthropic activities; he founded the sports and media investment group Kosmos Holding, and has been an advocate for tennis and other sports.
