Pique: Most referees are close to Real Madrid

On February 2, Gerard Pique celebrated his 34th birthday. Two days after his birthday, the Barcelona midfielder gave Post United an interview. In yesterday’s conversation (February 4), the Barcelona player bluntly said that most of the referee in La Liga is close to Real Madrid.

“There is a former referee, I cannot remember his name, perhaps Iturralde, who said that 85% of the referee is from Madrid. Here’s a statistic that’s been mentioned, you probably know. So, how can they not blow the bias for Real Madrid?

Unconsciously, how could they not like this team over the other? I respect the professionalism of the referees and know they try to do the best job they can, but when there is a moment of doubt (50-50 situations) they seem to be on Real’s side. Madrid, “Barcelona’s player said bluntly.

Also in this interview, Pique mentioned about Ramos staying or going after the 2020/21 season. The center-back, just 34 years old, said: “Ramos is a strong leader. I spoke to Ramos, but not about renewing his contract. We get along very well. I also have good relationships with other Real Madrid players.

I exchanged shirts with them and had their jerseys in the house. I have some Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramos and Benzema shirts”.

In addition to the two issues mentioned above, Pique once again confirmed he wanted to become Barca’s president in the future, and said that his knee injury recovery process was better than expected. Pique had to retire from the end of November 2020 after a serious injury suffered in the defeat of Ateltico Madrid. Some sources believe that the 34-year-old midfielder could return to play in the Barcelona match to welcome PSG in the first round of the 1/8 Champions League round on February 17.
