Pique: Madrid Can't Cope With Barca Success

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has taken a swipe at rivals Real Madrid, saying they can't cope with the success the Catalan's have enjoyed in recent years.

Madrid have only won one La Liga title in the past five seasons, compared to Barca's four, while Blaugrana have also enjoyed Champions League success in recent years unlike Madrid who have yet to make the final since winning the competition back in 2002.

And The Spain international is not impressed with the way Madrid have behaved in public.

"It appears to be very difficult for Real Madrid that Barcelona are winning a lot of silverware," Pique was quoted as saying by Sport.

"They have to accept the situation as it is. Sometimes you win and sometimes another team wins.

"Football is going in cycles and it's Barcelona's cycle now."

The centre-back then responded to the ongoing attacks aimed at Barcelona and Lionel Messi.

"People are attacking us from all angles," he continued.

"Messi's case? There comes a point where you have to say 'enough'. There has to be justice at some point as people continue to accuse him of things he did not do."
