‘You’re so fake’: Family friend of Lionel Messi slams Gerard Pique over ‘crying’ claims

‘You’re so fake’: Family friend of Lionel Messi slams Gerard Pique over ‘crying’ claims

 

A family friend known to have close ties to Lionel Messi has caused quite the stir online on Friday, after unveiling a scathing message to Gerard Pique.

The situation stems from comments made by Pique regarding his former teammate this week, in which the Spanish veteran provided an insight into his emotional reaction to Messi’s departure for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

“I cried when Messi left Barcelona,” Pique explained to Gary Neville on The Overlap. “I cried for him. For the career he had at Barca, it would have been great if he had stayed until the end of his career at the club.

“For Barcelona and the fans Messi was like a God, it would have been great if he stayed.”

“Lionel Messi is the best player in the history of the game,” the Barca stopper concluded.
