Three days after his last match at Camp Nou against Almeria (2-0) and a beautiful ceremony in honor of his career, FC Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué left through the very small door on Tuesday on the lawn of Osasuna (2-1) in La Liga for the last match of his career. Annoyed by unfavorable refereeing decisions in the first period, the Spaniard, replacing at the start of the match, hastened to challenge Gil Manzano, the referee of the meeting, at the break, and was excluded.
The Spanish newspaper AS reveals on Wednesday the remarks that Gerard Pique would then have made, transcribed by the referee himself in the match report. ” It’s a fucking shame, I shit on your fucking mother would have dropped the Barcelonian, pursuing the referee into the tunnel. He would also have ended up assuring: You are the referee who pissed us off the most “.
No last match but a record
After the game, his coach Xavi admitted thathe intended to bring in his former teammate to replace Andreas Christensen, back from injury. Finally, the stroke of blood of Gerard Pique will have decided otherwise. It will however have allowed the former Spanish international to equal a last record: that of the number of red cards received by a Barcelona player, joining the former Bulgarian striker Hristo Stoichkov at 11 expulsions. Small consolation.
