Gerard Piqué suffered a serious knee injury in Saturday's game against Atletico Madrid and it looks like Barcelona's French defender is ready to take over the leadership of the team's defence.

It looks like Piqué will be out of action for at least two months and Clement Lenglet says he is well prepared for the situation.

The French defender told a press conference before the Champions League match against FC Dynamo Kyiv: "Pique is an important loss because he has been playing for many years and it affects us a lot, I am not the one who should answer [about my role] because it is the coach who picks the team.

"I feel prepared to help the team after two years or so, I am managing a little better being at the club and its environment but it is the coach who chooses the team."

Barcelona is 12th in La Liga, but Lenglet believes they still have a chance of winning the league.

"Yes, we can win; there are many games and points left, it has been a difficult start, with bad results, we lack points but there is still a lot left," he said.

"It would not be good to lower our aims, it would be a lack of respect for those who work for us and those who watch us on television, we have to go on and turn the situation around. "
