Gerard Pique:’The thing I don’t like about Madrid are the values’


Spain national team and Barcelona defender Gerard Pique reignites the feud between the two Spanish giants.

The Daily Mail reports that after the 2-0 victory against France in a friendly match Pique was asked a provocative question on whether he would ever work for Real Madrid.

Pique Answered: ‘I would never work for them. I have said many times, the thing I don’t like about Madrid are the values.’

‘I have huge appreciation for the players that they have and some of them are my friends.

‘But what I don’t like about Madrid is when you see the people that they have in the directors box and how they manipulate things in this country. That’s the only thing I don’t like.’

Asked who exactly he was referring to, he added: ‘The person, for example who indicted [Lionel] Messi or Neymar; and then there was different treatment for [Cristiano] Ronaldo.

‘She just happened to be sat there with Florentino [Perez]. But that is this country and it has always been that way. I don’t like what it transmits.’
