Cristiano Ronaldo was flattered by Barcelona’s Gerard Pique’s mimicking when Barca celebrated their La Liga win and has taunted them by saying they always talk about him even when they win.
Pique played alongside Ronaldo at Manchester United, winning a Premier League and Champions League double in the 2007-08 season but taunted the Portuguese football star by copying Ronaldo’s pose from an infamous post match picture.
When Ronaldo was asked about pique in an interview with La Sezta’s Jugones, he said;
‘ Even when they win a trophy they talk of Cristiano. Right or wrong they think of Cristiano and talk about me, but I have no problem with Pique.
Ronaldo also said that while he was disappointed not to win the European Golden Shoe award, he felt that Luis Suarez was deserving.
The Barcelona striker scored a remarkable 40 league goals for the La Liga champions — five more than rival Ronaldo, who won the prize last season.
“That is part of it, of course I am frustrated but I wasn’t obsessed,” he said. “I let things flow this year. Suarez played very well. He scored eight goals in two games. He had an excellent season and he deserved it.”
