The Barcelona defender is under a lot of pressure after the audio file revealed.



Gerard Piqué

has claimed that there has been no breach of the Super Cup agreement.

On Monday morning, a audop of conversations between Gerard Pique and the president of the Spanish Football Federation was revealed, in which the role of the Barcelona defender in the recent agreement with Saudi Arabia was mentioned. He announced that he would hold a press conference via Twitter after Barcelona's match against Cadiz, in which he would address the ambiguities. He explained that he had not committed any illegal act and that the agreement was ultimately in the interest of all parties.

He said:

“Here, the only illegal thing is that they took some private audio and leaked it to the press, you don’t have to be very smart to know who is behind it. It’s news that came out in 2019. Look at the archives. And it wasn’t news. Now in 2022 they have leaked the audio and now it’s news,”

“I bring an opportunity to the Spanish Football Federation. Before changing the format, the competition made €120,000, after the movement they are making €40m.”

“I know how to separate what is a commercial agreement with what I have done all of my life which is play football. I haven’t received any help. If you’re telling me that the competition itself will be affected by a commercial agreement, then you have no idea who I am. It’s throwing **** for the sake of throwing ****.”

“In these three years you can see whether there has been any effect on the competition or if they have helped us to win when Atletico Madrid or Real Madrid won.”
