Gerard Pique has revealed that his Barcelona teammate - but more importantly, PES cover star - Lionel Messi plays FIFA "a lot".
A selection of Barca players were attending the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala in Zurich, to watch 3 of their teammates fight for the most prestigious title in world football. Of course, Messi won the award, impressively pipping both Andres Iniesta and Xavi.
The event also saw reigning FIFA Interactive World Cup Champion Nenad Stojkovic, have a few words about his successful year to the audience - as well as having a game of FIFA with Gerard Pique, who presented the FIWC10 prize.
After presenting Stojkovic his FIWC10 winner's certificate, Pique said this:
“I play FIFA11 on the road, in hotels and with the team,” says Pique. “Messi and Iniesta also like to play a lot.”
We're not sure what exactly is written in the contract between Messi and Konami, but it's obvious that Messi is being forced to play FIFA against his will, obviously...
Something. Must. Be. Done.
