Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué has spoken about his relationship with Real Madrid players, including Sergio Ramos.
Piqué also spoke about his relationship with former Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and said that he even has the Portuguese jersey.
In an interview with United Post, the legendary Spanish defender also spoke about Lionel Messi’s contract.
Messi has not held talks with any other club despite being free to discuss a contract elsewhere, while Ramos is in a contractual showdown with the LaLiga champions.
“I speak with him, but not about his renewal,” said Piqué about Ramos. “We get along very well. With Madrid, the relationship is very good.
“I have exchanged shirts with them and I have Madrid shirts at home. I have Cristiano [Ronaldo], [Karim] Benzema, Ramos… some. But wearing one is too much for me. ”
On the decisions of Ramos and Messi, Piqué insists that the players have excessive power in the modern game.
“I do not think so. They have the stature and they can give their opinion and, from there, decisions can go one way or another, ”he said.
“When you have a board of directors or a very strong president, who has clear ideas, the player has little to say.
“Sergio is an example, with the contract conversations that he is having: when there is a strong president who makes a decision and wants to take that path, the players cannot do much.”
