Video: Madrid players mock Pique during title celebrations
Someone else who’ll probably have a headache when he logs onto Twitter is Gerard Pique.
A video has emerged of the Madrid players on board the open-top bus chanting a derogatory song about the Barcelona defender.
In the video, and as per the Spanish newspaper Marca, Madrid’s players can be heard chanting: “Pique, b**tard, greet the champion!”
Watch it here…
Twitter thinks it knows who started the chant
It’s unclear which of the Madrid players actually started the chant, although Twitter seems fairly convinced that it was either Isco, recently linked with a summer move to the Camp Nou, or possibly Dani Carvajal.
But regardless of who started it, all of the players were clearly enjoying it.
Sergio Ramos clearly enjoyed it
Sergio Ramos, Pique’s arch-rival, can be seen jumping up and down while sporting a huge smile as his international colleague was comically mocked.
It shouldn’t be long before Pique drops a tweet in response to the Madrid chants - so, watch this space.
