Power to the Players: Piqué and Ramos' business venture

Gerard Piqué raised eyebrows on Wednesday by declaring that he and Spain international colleague Sergio Ramos are set to go into business together.

"It's a lie that Sergio Ramos and I get on badly - we get on phenomenally," the Barcelona player told a press conference held in a bid to diffuse the tension surrounding him in the wake of Sunday's Catalan independence referendum.

"What's more, we're going to be partners in a business venture I proposed to him."

Reported that Piqué, Ramos to collaborate on media platform

And although Piqué did not reveal details of the project, several outlets say that it is a media platform created for and by sportspeople called Power to the Players.

The 30-year-old has previously spoken of his plans to establish a "means of communication that is different, true, authentic and for the players":

Power to the Players would follow on from The Players' Tribune

Such a project would follow in the footsteps of The Players' Tribune, an English-language platform set up by the former baseball player Derek Jeter that directly publishes content written by professional athletes.

Among those to have contributed to The Players' Tribune are Real Madrid stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo, Piqué's Barça team-mate Ivan Rakitic and basketball legend Kobe Bryant.
