"The Berlin final made me very excited," he admitted."We arrived from a complex first few months and then we won everything."It was our second treble, which means that this group of players achieved something that nobody would have expected."The relationship with Carles Puyol is one which the 31-year-old looks back on with pride, both on a personal and professional level."Puyol is the teammate who left the biggest influence on me," he intimated."From the very first moment I arrived, he treated me like a brother."We played in the same position for both Barcelona and the national team, we understood each other very well, we connected well from the first moment."Pique is still thriving at the team, having scored in Sunday night's Supercopa de Espana victory. sbo333
