Pique excited about Barcelona future

Gerard Pique says he is excited about working under new Barcelona coach Luis Enrique after signing a new contract until June 2019.

Tomas: Barcelona season review

Enrique is set to oversee a shake-up of the Camp Nou dressing-room this summer, with question marks over the futures of previous mainstays including Xavi Hernandez, Dani Alves, Cesc Fabregas, Alexis Sanchez, Pedro Rodriguez and Javier Mascherano.

However, Pique -- along with others who have recently signed new contracts including Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets -- looks set for a key role in the new regime and the 27-year-old is relishing the chance to play under Enrique.

"I am very excited," Pique said on the club's official website. "In his press conference he showed that he's very clear about his ideas. He knows this place well and I think he'll do a lot of good for us. I am really looking forward to working under him."

Pique, who left Barca's La Masia academy for Manchester United and then returned in 2008 after four years away, said he could now see himself spending the rest of his career at the Catalan club.

"Knowing that I could live out my career here is a big boost for me," he said. "I hope we can enjoy as many successes as we have had already. FC Barcelona has to be at the top, winning titles and feeling important among the elite of European and world football. We have a team and a coach. We have all the ingredients to get back where we belong."
