Barcelona star Gerard Pique has revealed the lame chat-up line which he used in winning Shakira over -as he gave hope to single men around the world…The Barcelona and Spain star has been with the Colombian pop princess for six years after they met ahead of the World Cup in 2010.
The pair who have two children together -met during the filming of her video for her song Waka Waka. Pique revealed they first started talking about the weather as and when they met
The Spanish defender told an interview in Spain:
“She arrived in South Africa before us because she was singing at the opening ceremony. I sent her a text asking how the weather was because we were arriving in a few days.”
Not exactly thrilling, is it? But it worked. He continues;
“This is a typical stupid question that you write and normally get a response like, ‘it’s cold, bring a coat’. “But the she writes a long paragraph, detailing the change in temperature throughout the day. “I thought, ‘Jesus, this is not normal’. It was in those details that I could tell there was affection.”
And it turned out that Shakira proved to be Pique’s inspiration behind Spain’s World Cup victory. He continues:
“We started messaging each other throughout the tournament, but the only chance I would have of seeing her would be at the final because she was performing the closing ceremony. “I told her that if I had to reach the final to see her I would do so. And that was the second time we met, after the World Cup Final.”
