Shakira’s collaboration with Bizarrap can really cut you apart. The hard-hitting lyrics still echo in the fan’s minds so many months later. Due to this diss track, the FC Barcelona legend became a laughingstock on social media. Following that, the fans took every opportunity to humiliate him in public spaces. The soccer veteran had to once abruptly depart from an NBA game in embarrassment.

From her diss track with Bizarrap, this was one of the lines, “Ah, so much time at the gym. But maybe work out your brain a bit too”. The retired soccer star did not respond to this taunt immediately. A few weeks ago, he was conversing with DjMaRiiO. The YouTuber asked him if he had been to the gym. And Pique’s response raised quite a few eyebrows on social media.

It was like a message saying, ‘Touch a machine’”, as compiled by Marca and translated by Google Translate.

Although it did take a while, he finally responded to the edgy lyric Shakira after months of criticism from the fans.

Without a doubt, Gerard Pique has served FC Barcelona for more than a decade. The fans should ideally respect his abrupt decision to stay away from the sport after retirement. Nonetheless, he is still making plenty of money. The soccer veteran cashed out around $3 million as profit from the first season of the Kings League.
