Gerard Pique is one big troll, isn’t he?
The Spanish defender just loves mocking Real Madrid but he’s usually quite respectful to his former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo - that is until last weekend.
During Barcelona’s La Liga title parade, Pique was seen on the open-top bus re-creating Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘calma’ celebration (Scroll down this page to watch the video.)

Teammate Luis Suarez could be seen in hysterics as Pique imitated the Portuguese superstar.
But it seems that Pique must have been under the influence of alcohol because he claims that “it could have happened” but he “can’t remember.”

Well, we’ll remind you of your actions, Gerard.
As you can see, Pique can be seen mimicking one of Ronaldo’s infamous celebrations to the amusement of his teammates.
It’s a celebration that Ronaldo used himself when he’s scored against Barcelona at the Camp Nou in recent years to order the crowd to be quiet.
More than 100,00 Barcelona supporters lined the streets to celebrate Barcelona’s second consecutive league title as they edged Real Madrid by a single point.
Pique will be hoping his side are able to parade another trophy after this weekend. Luis Enrique’s side take on Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final as they aim to complete a domestic double.
But their opponents will also be hoping to complete an incredible double for themselves. Sevilla beat Liverpool 3-1 in the Europa League final on Wednesday and a victory against Barcelona would round off a sensational campaign.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo and his teammates could also be parading a trophy this season. Madrid take on city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final next week so don’t be surprised to see one of Ronaldo's infamous celebrations come May 28.
While Ronaldo is the main man for Los Blancos, Barcelona have Lionel Messi. The two players have shared the Ballon d’Or crown each year since 2007 and Pique, who has played alongside both, has compared the two superstars.
"I think that they are both amazing," Pique was quoted as saying by ESPN. "We are talking about two of the best players, not just in the world but the history of this sport.
"I always said that Messi has some talent that no one has. I mean, he has the ball and his speed controlling the ball. The ball doesn't go two metres far from his foot, it's always there. It's impossible to catch him, this talent I didn't see from anyone.
"Cristiano Ronaldo is such a different player, they are very different. He is tall, strong, he's really complete. He can do anything. He can do goals with the head, free-kicks, penalties, take one on one.
"But for me it's like Messi is not human but Cristiano is the best of the humans."
