Gerard Pique has once again caught Real Madrid by its throat. A few weeks back, the former soccer star made headlines after claiming fans would forget Madrid’s last UEFA Champions League triumph. This belittling comment from the Spaniard did not sit well with many, including the club’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti. La Casa Blanca has earned the European title fourteen times with their top-level performance. Nonetheless, the 36-year-old has no intention of giving any credit for the club’s impressive victories.

In an interview with El Mon a RAC 1, Gerard Piqué criticized Real Madrid’s latest Champions League victory. The 36-year-old said, “Winning the Champions League has a lot of merit and I won’t take that away from Madrid. However, it’s clear that they weren’t better than any of their opponents in the last UCL they won. Incredible things: fighting a lot, epic comebacks. 5 minutes were enough to beat City.” Here, Pique made it clear that Madrid was in no way better than their opponents and did nothing praiseworthy.

Undoubtedly, these comments from Pique can invite a lot of hatred, as Real Madrid is widely considered a club that goes to great lengths to do its best. Last time, the former center-back left the soccer world dumbstruck by claiming their triumph was just a miracle, which they didn’t deserve. The Spaniard blasted the club by stating that they were not superior in any qualifier or even in the finale. Given these circumstances, Pique was certain that Madrid’s win would fade into oblivion.

Like many, my journey into the beautiful game began by watching the mesmerizing Lionel Messi, as his impeccable vision on the pitch and role as a playmaker, meticulously calculating the path to goal always amazed me.
