Pique created Whatsapp group to mock Real players

Piqué admits creating Whatsapp group to 'taunt' Real Madrid team-mates in La Roja

March 22, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The Catalan defender detailed how former coach Luis Enrique was key for his desire to defend the Spanish National Team.

"If you only read what the media says, you would think that we hate one another," that's one of the first statements Gerard Piqué wrote in one more of his articles published on his website.

The Catalan defender candidly spoke about his relationship with other players, especially those Real Madrid players that defend the Spanish National Team in the article, while revealing there is a special Whatsapp group for them to troll one another.

"Everybody knows that footballers have text groups on WhatsApp. I have one just for my friends from home, and I have another just for my Barca team-mates. But my favourite one might surprise you. Earlier this season, when we were already eight or nine points clear of Real Madrid in the league, I started a special group for some of the guys on the Spanish national team who play for Real Madrid and Barcelona," Piqué revealed.

The Catalan defender went on to reveal the contents of that group, but he didn't waste the opportunity to joke about it.

"If you only read what the media says, you would think that we hate one another. But, in fact, we all get along really well, and we text back and forth about tactics and football philosophies and even the books we’re reading... No, come on, of course I’m joking! All we do in that group is talk sh*t to one another about Barça and Real!" Piqué stated.

"Every time they won a match last season, they were posting shirtless photos on Instagram from the locker room. Remember that? They were smiling and flexing their muscles like The Rock and saying #HalaMadrid and posting little trophy emojis. This season, though, it’s a different vibe. So I’m texting them in the WhatsApp group, 'Come on guys, why so serious?!'", the player added.

"They'll say that I'm a traitor" - Piqué on Madrid-based media

On a more serious note, Piqué referred to the joy he experiences every time he wears the Spanish jersey, and how his former manager Luis Enrique was his inspiration to play for the National Team.

"We are all playing for the same country, with the same dream, and that’s something that I’m very, very proud of. Ever since I was a little boy watching Luis Enrique bleed all over his jersey at the ’94 World Cup, my dream was to play for the national team," Piqué wrote.

"I’m extremely proud to wear the badge every four years at the World Cup. Maybe that will surprise some people. If you watch television in Madrid, they’ll tell you a very different story about me. They’ll say that I’m a traitor, and that I want to tear the country apart because of my public support for the Catalan people’s right to vote in the independence referendum," the player added.
