Gerard Pique: I am ready to wait for my chance

Manchester United defender Gerard Pique might be struggling to earn games under manager Sir Alex Ferguson this season but the Spanish Under21 international isn’t giving up hope on his Man United career. The youngster who was on loan to Spanish side Real Zaragoza last season has made just 10 appearances all season in all competitions for the Red Devils but remains confident of breaking into a regular central defensive position in the first team:

They complement (Rio Ferdinand & Nemanja Vidic) each other very well,” Pique told Inside United.
They’re two of the best centre-backs in the world, both strong in the air and good on the ball. And they show their qualities all the time, not only in games, but every day in training. They’re always striving to improve.
I know I have to work just as hard, if not harder than they do if I want to play and that’s what I’m trying to do.
You can look at it both ways.
In one way, it’s frustrating because I’d like to be playing every week, but at the same time I’m learning from two of the best.
I’m confident my chance will arrive. So I have no problem with it.

But how long would you sustain the frustration, Pique? He is still young and on a learning curve and maybe he needs to find a club that can guarantee him regular football.
