Gerard Pique has been extremely entertaining to follow on social media over the past few days.
First, the defender responded to incorrect information about his Barcelona salary, and now he’s targeting Villarreal manager Unai Emery.
The Spanish boss was not happy that Pique was posting his thoughts on the refereeing decisions in the Real Madrid vs Valencia game on social media.
Emery said at a press conference: “Yesterday Pique took to Twitter to talk about the refereeing in the game between Real Madrid and the game in Valencia.
“Instead of being silent, you need to be honest and not deceive people. ”
So his comments on Pique’s tweet meant that Pique had tweeted that Emery used to complain about decisions.
He said the former Arsenal boss was still discussing arbitration appeals from PSG’s 6-1 defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League – three years after the loss.
He tweeted: “This is someone who three years later was still complaining about the 6-1 referee. Go on, Unai.
It comes just three days after he was embroiled in more controversy on Twitter.
Amid an uncertain and troubling time in Catalonia, the center-back has been accused of clearing € 14million (£ 11.7million) per season, by TV presenter Lluis Canut.
However, the 34-year-old revealed on Twitter that half of his annual salary, which was paid to him in December, was € 2,328,884.39 (£ 1.94million).
Pique tweeted: “People like this get paid by public television to stand up for their friends. This is 50 percent of my salary as of December 30. Have a little respect for yourself.
