Pique and Zlatan: Reunited. (Sport)

Barcelona traveled to Paris for a friendly against PSG on Saturday, bringing about the long-awaited reunion of Gerard Pique and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Though they only played one season together at Barca, Pique and Zlatan forged one of the most heart-warming friendships the sport has ever known.

When Zlatan went to Milan, both players moved on. Pique started making out with Shakira everywhere, while Ibrahimovic seemed to find a new best friend in Ignazio Abate. But Zlatan has changed clubs once again and, like the true friend that he is, Pique was there to help make his first match at his new home a little easier with a handshake and a smile.

Zlatan went on to score with a penalty in a match that ended regular time at 2-2 before Barcelona eventually won the Paris Trophy in a shootout. Afterwards, Zlatan and Pique probably built a towel fort in one of the dressing rooms. Ibra then spent the rest of the night telling Pique all the ways that his iPad app is way better than Shakira's.
