It’s probably one of the only good things to come out of the current situation, but the lack of fans in the ground does mean that we can hear what goes down on the field.
There was a moment tonight when Gerard Pique appeared to absolutely lose it with Antoine Griezmann for wasting possession, and the various translations of the exchange are quite something:
?DISCUSSIÓ PIQUÉ-GRIEZMANN@3gerardpique: “Una puta posesión larga, ¡joder!”@AntoGriezmann: “Tranquilo, deja de gritar, la concha de su madre…”@3gerardpique: “No, la concha de su madre tú, que estamos sufriendo y estamos corriendo como locos…”pic.twitter.com/diYzWTTg6k

Piqué: “Just one f***ing long possession, f**k!”
Griezmann: “Calm down, stop yelling…your mother’s c**t.”
Piqué: “No, your mother’s c**t, we are suffering and running like crazy people.”

Pique: “Not one fucking long spell of possession, fucks sake. Fucking hell! Come on!”
Griezmann: “That’s enough Geri, easy.”
Pique: “FFS Grizi, fucking hell!”
Griezmann: “Fuck off.”
Pique: “No, you fuck off yourself! We’re suffering, we’ve been like this for 5mins!” #UCL

??Pique was caught on camera shouting at Griezmann.
– Pique: “we are too high, fu*king s*it”
– Pique: “It sucks!”
– Griezmann: “F*ck your mother’s p*ssy”
– Pique: “No, fu*k you, and your mom.”

Pique just looked gutted at the end of the game as he watched on from the stands after being subbed off, so it does look like he’s lost patience with some of his teammates.
