Piques remark also caused him to quarrel with Spanish host edu Aguirre, one of Ronaldos closest friends in Spain. Edu Aguirre accused pique of you should go home and cry, and pique said you have exceeded the limit.
When dealing with Real Madrid and Barcelona, does the referee adopt a double standard? The world sports daily compared the frequency of yellow cards for pique and Carmelo, both of whom are mainly in charge of defence. Against Valencia, Casimiro fouled four times in the first half alone. His tackle on condobia in the 12th minute was a standard yellow card move and if he did, he would be out of action against the Royal Society this weekend. But Carmelo finished the game without a yellow card.
In this season, Carmelo has had nine yellow cards for 73 fouls, with an average of one yellow every eight fouls. Pique got 12 yellow cards for 28 fouls, and yellow every 2.3 fouls on average. Pique fouls 45 times less than Carmelo, but eats three more yellow cards. According to the world sports daily, this is the evidence of double standards of referees.
