Gerard Pique: The Truth Behind My Relationship With Ramos
FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has spoken about his relationship with Spain and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
Earlier on Wednesday, reports surfaced that the pair had fallen out over the Catalan star's public political views, and that they were not on talking terms.
In front of a packed press conference, Pique tackled all questions regarding his comments on Catalan independence, and also touched on his supposedly bad relationship with Ramos.
"The stuff about Sergio and me is all a lie," the Blaugrana stalwart said, as quoted by Sport English.
"We have a phenomenal relationship, and I would like if someday you see that. It's easy that every now and again you say we get to together to sort things out, but there's no need.
"We're very close, and we will be partners in a business that I proposed to him."
Pique has made 91 appearances for La Furia Roja so far in his career, scoring five goals along the way.
