Gerard Pique has admitted that for the first time in his career he feels inferior to Real Madrid.
Real Madrid managed to secure a 5-1 win in aggregate against Barca in the Spanish Super Cup, with Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema scoring the only goals in the 2-0 win on Wednesday night at Santiago Bernabeu.
Gerard Pique was mocked by Madrid fans for “Se queda” or “He stays” post on social media adressing to Neymar’s future before he joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
On the other hand, Madrid are enjoying one of the best periods ever under the guidance of Zinedine Zidane who won his seventh trophy in 21 months as a manager.
However, Pique was taken off in the second half after suffering an injury and watched his side struggling against Los Blancos until the final whistle.
While he was leaving the pitch, home supporters were chanting at him “he stays, he stays”.
“In the nine years I’ve been [at Barca], it’s the first time I feel inferior to Madrid,” Pique told reporters after the defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“We’re not having our best time as a team or a club. We should all be as close to each other as possible and move forward.
“We must live with this defeat and accept that Madrid are better than us [at the moment], but the season’s very long and there’s room for improvement.” //Actuantes//
