It has been more than a decade since Sara Carbonero, 37, began the best-known stage of her professional life in the Telecinco news. After a period on the radio and her time on LaSexta , the then young journalist started a time as the presenter of the Sports section with which she achieved great national recognition. She always had Pedro Piqueras by her side, hand in hand with her on the set. But what the communicator has revealed now is that the host of the news has not only been a great professional support, but is also a great friend on a personal level.
Carbonero herself has revealed that friendship in her program on Radio Marca, Que follow the dance , where her last interviewee was Piqueras, whom she affectionately calls "The Boss." After the radio talk, the presenter wrote an affectionate text on her social networks where she showed the closeness that unites them. "I will always thank Pedro Piqueras for being the 'culprit' of my happiest professional stage, being a teacher, beacon, partner and friend, all at the same time," he said, thanking Piqueras for having attended his program although he does not usually give interviews. In addition, Carbonero revealed on her Instagram profile that Piqueras came to Porto to see her when she lived for a few years in the Portuguese city , during the stage in which her partner, Iker Casillas, was a goalkeeper for the city's team. "I told him two years ago, during an after-meal after eating at the Graham's winery in Porto, and even though he doesn't have social networks, I repeat that I could spend a whole life listening to him speak," Carbonero confessed.
The revelations came from the two. Piqueras, 65, is not usually lavish from the interviewee's side, and it was surprising that he told some anecdotes from his little-known personal life . The one from Albacete told Carbonero that it is "good" to have to report on the coronavirus, but that the hardest thing is to communicate the numbers of deaths every day. "I find it a horror," he confessed. “It is true that when you give a lower figure than the previous day it is something satisfactory. But hopefully the time will come when there are none. That being in the afternoon waiting for the data of infections and deaths … is a pain. ”

In addition, Piqueras said that one of his great hobbies is yoga . And that, although at the moment he does not intend to withdraw from television, if he did, that practice would help him: “I think that yoga will help me to leave journalism . As I am seeing things with increasing peace, I hope I am not that person who is looking at what he left all the time. ”
He also told the curious anecdote why he decided to sign Carbonero something that, he says, cost him“ very much". The point is that he couldn't see her, because she presented on LaSexta at the same time that he did on Telecinco. So he asked his wife for a favor: "I'd like to take her, but I haven't heard her voice." It was she, his wife, who listened to her and recommended that signing that would later make Carbonero a star. "My counselor was her, she told me: 'She is very good and also very beautiful.' It was not easy because Ferreras did not let go of her or fed up with wine; and second, because my boss gave me a very short margin of maneuver, ”said Piqueras, half jokingly half seriously. In addition, he also revealed that he met the head of Mediaset, Paolo Vasile, with Sara Carbonero for a dinner, and that she, despite the pressure, "was very serious, very formal and very professional."
