After a long season with Catalan giants Barcelona, centre-back Gerard Pique is enjoying a well-earned summer break in Singapore, wisely utilising his time off to recharge his batteries. 

The 30-year-old defender uploaded picture on his Instagram profile of himself sitting back in an infinity pool with the caption: “Great views at the @marinabaysands pool! I had an amazing time in Singapore! Hope to come here again very soon…”

Pique, whose partner is Colombian pop-star Shakira, had on Thursday crashed his dune buggy while on vacation in Qatar but seemed to have emerged unscathed, much to the relief of the Blaugrana faithful, who feared he might miss out on pre-season.

A La Masia graduate, Pique went to English Premier League side Manchester United while still a junior, but after finding it difficult to break into the Red Devils starting XI, moved back to Barcelona  in 2008 and his career blossomed ever since. 

With close to 400 appearances for La Blaugrana and a mainstay in the Spanish national side, Pique has maintained his position as one of the finest defenders in the world for many seasons now.
