Pique clarifies his spat with Busquets during Barcelona’s match against Atletico Madrid.


Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has spoken out about his spat with teammate Sergio Busquets following the Catalans’ 2-0 La Liga defeat to Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

After Thomas Lemar had opened the scoring for the hosts, the two players were seen fighting on the pitch. After the full-time whistle, Pique was questioned about the incident and was happy to provide an explanation, according to Marca. “We had already discussed the fact that they hit with Lemar and generate superiority..”

“No one went with him [Lemar] when Ronald Araujo came out of defense,” he said. “No one enjoys giving up a goal. We had discussed it, and their two objectives are very similar. ”

Former Barcelona striker Luis Suarez added a second before halftime to seal the win and hand the Catalan giants their first La Liga defeat of the season, dropping them to ninth in the standings. Follow the Heavy on Barcelona Facebook page for the latest breaking news, rumors, and content!

Pique Opens Up On Barca’s Issues

Pique Opens Up On Barca’s Issues

Barcelona has only managed three wins in all competitions this season, and Pique opened up on the team’s current issues after the final whistle at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

“It’s not just one issue; there are several,” he explained. “I believe people are aware of it.” You can see where we’re falling short. We’ll bounce back from this, as well as the loss on Wednesday. These are trying times, and few of us in the squad have experienced anything like it before. The mood in the dressing room is upbeat, and there is a desire to improve things, but it isn’t easy. ”

The Catalan giants lost a number of key players over the summer, including Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, and have been plagued by injuries to key players at the start of the season.

Teenage striker Ansu Fati has only recently returned from a 10-month layoff due to a knee injury, while Pedri, Ousmane Dembele, Sergio Aguero, and Martin Braithaite were all injured and missed Saturday’s match.

Toothless Barcelona Fail To Score

Injuries to Barcelona’s attackers have been a major issue, as evidenced by the visitors’ inability to work goalkeeper Jan Oblak and their failure to score for the second match in a row.

Pique admitted that his team is having difficulty scoring goals and that they must keep working hard to improve their situation.

“We need to take a break during the national team break and then get back to work.” “I think we started well, we were brave,” he continued, “but a couple of breaks and they scored from very little.” “We could play for three hours and not score a goal from here.” The situation appears to be complicated. I’ll be honest, we’re suffering. We must continue to strive for improvement. ”

Due to the recent international break, Barcelona has two weeks off and will not play again until October 17, when Valencia visits the Camp Nou in La Liga.
