Question: Is Messi playing more mature now than previously?
Piqué: “We are talking not only about the best player in the world, but the best in history. If we want to win more titles, we have to align ourselves with Messi.” 

Question: Only with him?
Piqué: “Not only. A successful team needs outstanding protagonists in every part of the team, as there have been in the past years with for example Carles Puyol in defense or Xavi in midfield. But Messi is simply THE player.” (via grup14)
