Gerrard Pique, close to returning to the courts, sat down to chat with him DjMaRiiO, One of the most important content creators in Spain. It was a quiet conversation in which different topics were discussed. Since the Catalan center-back is someone who doesn’t keep what he thinks, he did not hesitate to talk about the last league referee.
The world champion was straightforward and succinct. He described refereeing after the break as the most ugly thing he had seen since his football career. He understood that the referees’ decisions greatly benefited Real Madrid Football Club.
Gerard Pique: ‘the last league referee was expected’
“Last year, the League, when I restarted it … what happens is that Barcelona history is when we are so bad, we beat each other with the whip and say, ‘How bad we are! “But this is Madrid … the last league is the most horrific I have ever seen. The match in San Sebastian included 4 questionable plays and 4 whistles in favor of … Benzema’s hand, a disallowed goal against Real Sociedad from Before a player 15 meters away from Courtois who they say is blocking his vision … in other words, some of the things that are using VAR are completely unjustified. You’re going to San Mames. Piston in one area, whistle that. Step into the other area, don’t whistle The plays are very similar. This is what they are used to receiving. And then, when they don’t whistle, they say, “You can whistle.” Of course you can whistle. You can whistle everything.
For Pique, in practically every game of the last stage of the tournament, deliberations were held that ended with strengthening / helping Real Madrid: “Football is the team is in good shape, but it is about confidence and starting to win, and from there, the team feels more solid. And when you get to a good streak, everything is more expensive. If the first games that were this, huh. It was. The second or third game is in San Sebastian, then San Mames came. At home there were also two games, with Getafe or Mallorca, I don’t remember that. In every match, the player who had to speak in the mixed zone of the opposing team comes out and says: “The referees have hurt us. It was every game! Back then, because Barcelona is so bad, we focused so hard on our problems, nothing was said.
The Blaugrana defender also spoke about the limited media coverage that occurs when disputes go to Real Madrid: “And worst of all, which I realize because it’s been so many years, is that the San Sebastian game is over, and in (Movistar) Plus, you win the game with 4 plays (controversial), that 4 plays falling on the Madrid side is no accident. But regardless. About this, who are the commentators or commentators who have to analyze questionable plays? Lvaro Benito, who talks incredibly and knows a lot about football, but has a past in Madrid.So, when you play with Real Madrid and you have a past there, what won’t You do is oppose it; Roberto Palomar, journalist for life from Madrid; Santi Canizares, also from Madrid. I would like to see two with Real Madrid’s past and two Real Sociedad who can give their opinion. Because in the end it is whitening. And if the four commentators say: “No, then the four Plays for Madrid. ”Oh man, no wonder, if they had all the history of former Real Madrid players or journalists, what would they say? In the end, this frustrates you because you see that one thing is being sold to whoever watches the game. The four plays were not whistle in favor of Real Madrid… they weren’t… but it is being sold that way and in the end Alan believes it S “.
A person born in 1987 before FC Barcelona also had nights that had signs of referee at his side. However, he has no doubt that Real Madrid have been, historically, the team that has benefited the most: “Everyone fights for their interests. It is clear that the adults benefit us more than the little ones. This is a lack of thinking. Because of the pressure the referees exert to not appear on the front pages of the newspapers. It is undeniable that we are fighting against Madrid and Atlético de Madrid to win the league and titles. I can compare myself if it helps me more or less, with all due respect, with a struggling team. Because I will not play the league with him. I have to compare myself with others. In this case, you will be able to make the comparisons you want, but it’s exciting It is impressive that historically … there may have been one year that did not do that, but historically, Real Madrid benefited the most. It’s not like I say, the majority of the countries say that. ”
Undefeated data. Gerard Pique has won 8 of the 12 Spanish Leagues with Barcelona’s first team. Overwhelming dominance.
Did you know…? Real Madrid have won twice in the last 4 Spanish leagues. Both raised them with Zinedine Zidane as DT.
