Gerard Pique much more relaxed v Bilbao
All eyes were on Gerard Pique during Barcelona’s match against Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday night.
Pique had very publicly lost his cool after Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Villarreal on Sunday.
Even after Leo Messi’s free-kick equaliser, Pique still felt that Barcelona were robbed by the referee and that there is a conspiracy against the Catalan side this season.
Pique turns the other cheek
Spanish TV had a special camera on Gerard Pique during the 3-1 Copa del Rey win over Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday night.
Despite it being a close game, in terms of the tie, with Barcelona only winning late on thanks to Messi’s latest free-kick, Pique did not kick up a fuss at all.
When there were some disputed decisions, the likes of Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, the MSN, Jordi Alba all complained… but not Gerard Pique.
It feels like Pique has been listening to manager Luis Enrique, saying: “We are always going to support Piqué, but sometimes he has to be careful.”
