GERARD PIQUE dedicated his winning goal in Barcelona’s win over Dynamo Kiev to his son Milan, Shakira revealed.
The centre-back’s long-term partner took to social media to share the celebration.
Pique celebrated his glancing header into the far corner by looking at the camera and saluting.
And Shakira said it was a touching gesture to their seven-year-old.
She wrote on Instagram: “Milan was so happy this morning to learn that his dad dedicated last night’s Champions League goal to him!”
Shakira, 43, and Pique, born exactly a decade later, have been together since 2011.
They met the previous year when the Barcelona defender appeared in the music video for her song ‘Waka Waka’, for the 2010 World Cup.
Milan was born in January 2013, 24 months before his younger brother Sasha.
Pique and his family may have been thinking about relocating this summer as the Spaniard was linked with a move away from Barcelona.
He did offer to leave after hitting ‘rock bottom’ following the 8-2 thumping at the hands of Bayern Munich.
