Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has revealed why he is yet to tie the knot with popstar partner Shakira.
The Spanish central defender has revealed that he is content with where he is in his life currently and doesn’t feel that marriage would influence their relationship. Asked by Gary Neville on The Overlap about why he is yet hasn’t married Shakira, Pique replied: “No, I’m not married.”
Neville then asked if Pique wasn’t proposing because Shakira wants to keep him on his toes, to which he replied: “It’s her mentality!” He continued: “I like it how we are right now. We have two kids, nine and seven, we work good as a couple. We don’t have the need to be married, it’s fine.”
Neville then joked that Pique had proposed to Shakira privately but been rejected, but he laughed off the comment. “No no no,” he said, “I would tell you!”
Shakira has dropped some hints to her boyfriend that she might like to have a ring on her finger, though he may not have been in the good books recently. The former Manchester United defender revealed that he preferred being booed and abused by Espanyol fans to sex.
He told The Wild Project: “I’m happy that Espanyol has been promoted to the first division because that’s how we play in their stadium. I like to go there, I get whistled at all the time.
