Gerard Pique points out the difference
Barcelona might have registered one of their worst European Cup performances recently, but, Gerard Pique is still not shying away from throwing barbs at Real Madrid.
Yesterday, he did that again on social media.
In one of his tweets, the playmaker wrote that a few people are not being able to digest the fact that Barcelona supporters clap for their players even when they lose and get eliminated from Europe and that’s because those people never get that type of reaction from their own supporters. They keep getting booed by their supporters in spite of making it to final four of Europe.

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has said that the 3-1 win over Sporting Gijon during the weekend will give his side immense self belief as they get into the business end of the season.
Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola was extremely delighted with the result of the match, despite the fact that Barcelona had defender Gerard Pique sent off in the match.
Perhaps, it was one of the reasons for Guardiola to be extremely happy with the result. Barcelona were coming into the match against Sporting Gijon without their influential player – Lionel Messi. Messi was suspended for this match after getting this fifth yellow card of the season in the previous match.
PIQUE NOT GIVING UP
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has said that Barcelona will not be giving up on the la Liga title, despite going 10 points behind Real Madrid in the table.
Barcelona could manage only a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Osasuna recently, which give the opportunity for Real Madrid to extend their lead at the top of the table.
Real Madrid obliged to this gift from Barcelona, as they went on and secured a crushing victory over struggling Levante. As a result of these results, Barcelona are now a mammoth 10 points behind the Real Madrid, which has all but brought an end to their hopes of winning the league title four times in a row.
PIQUE UNHAPPY WITH PEPE
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has said that he will not be interested in becoming part of a team that has Real Madrid Pepe as a player.
Real Madrid defender Pepe was caught stamping deliberately on Lionel Messi during the recent 2-1 defeat they suffered at the hands of Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey.
Pepe has been subjected to a number of disciplinary procedures in the recent matches between Barcelona, which has made Barcelona defender Gerard Pique feel that it is not sensible to have a player like Pepe in the dressing room.
Even though Pepe was punished with a yellow card immediately after the incident, it is thought that the card was not directly linked to the incident and to a previous foul.
MESSI IS WORLDS BEST
FC Barcelona and Spanish international defender Gerard Pique has reasserted that star striker Lionel Messi is the only player in the world at the moment that deserves the FIFA Ballon D’Or.
The little Argentine was up against Barcelona teammate Xavi Hernandez and eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo for the biggest individual award in the world of football and Pique believes that the level Messi is playing at right now cannot be compared.
