“He crossed the line”. No one at Real pronounced this sentence in public (even though Sergio Ramos came very close), but this is the feeling in Madrid, after Gerard Piqué’s latest comments regarding the “values” of Barcelona’s biggest rivals.
What I don’t like about Madrid is their palco (the part of the stands where the members of Real’s board are watching the games from at Bernabéu, among several other officials). I don’t like the strings that are pulled there
Piqué said wearing a t-shirt of the Spanish national team, before the end of the latest international break. He then went on to imply that Real Madrid are behind the troubles Lionel Messi and Neymar have been facing with the Law in Spain, while “nothing [is being done] about Ronaldo”.
Sergio Ramos avoided paying too much attention to what his partner in Spain’s defense said.
That’s how he is, we cannot expect him to change now in his 30s. It would be different if Iniesta had said the same things, because he never talks. Piqué talks all the time
Ramos said, but the legal department of Madrid seem to be taking Piqué’s latest comments much more seriously.
According to Spanish newspapers, Real could take legal action, with some within the club feeling that it would be a sign of guilt if they let this one pass without doing something.
