Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has revealed his opinion that Real Madrid counterpart Sergio Ramos should have been given his marching orders during last night’s El Clasico.
Speaking to reporters in the aftermath of his side’s stalemate, Barcelona defensive power Gerard Pique was asked for his take on proceedings in Catalunya, with the veteran having revealed his opinion that Real counterpart Sergio Ramos should have been sent for an early bath last night. Explicitly, he said, “the referee, Mateu Lahoz had a strange criterion. We had to play and adapt. In general, he had a good match.” “However, It was a red card for Sergio, but what can we do?” Pique added.
Nevertheless, Ramos was booked in the 10th-minute of the clash, before second-half exchanges with Arthur and Luis Suarez which saw him walk the disciplinary play line in avoiding a second yellow.
