Ex-La Liga official hit back on Pique after referee criticism

Gerard Pique has called into question the referees' impartiality in Spain but Former referee insists that Pique's words make no sense.

By that logic, Gerard could've let Barca win while on loan at Real Zaragoza.

Interestingly, Pique was a Man United loanee back then, not Barca's.

"I would tell Pique not to contradict himself, regardless of whether he believes in the referees' fairness or not. I have no doubts about his professionalism, but if one follows his reasoning... Did he let Barca win when he played for Zaragoza?" former La Liga referee Iturralde Gonzalez has told Cadena SER.

This is a very bold claim by Gonzalez. Why? Because Pique was a Manchester United loanee back when he played for Zaragoza.

Gerard Pique played for Zaragoza in the 2006/07 season. That season, Pique's side beat the Catalans 1-0 at home but lost 3-1 at Camp Nou.

On Thursday, Pique hit out at refereeing in Spain, claiming that 85 per cent of the referees are Real Madrid fans.
