Spain Star: We Don't Know How To Handle The Pique Situation

Spain Star: We Don't Know How To Handle The Gerard Pique Situation

By Keegan Kruger - Oct 04, 2017 05:00 PM @KeeganKruger

There have been reports suggesting that Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos are not on talking terms, but while that is not confirmed, Sergio Busquets has admitted the situation surrounding his Catalan teammate is hard to handle.

Reports: Pique & Ramos' Relationship Has Broken Down

With the recent political tension in Spain has crept its way into the Spanish national team following Pique's outspoken support of Catalonia's push for independence.

A number of supporters booed and whistled at the defender during an open training session on Monday, which was eventually cut short to just 23 minutes as a result, and it has become a situation Busquets is concerned about.

"I would say this is my most difficult spell in the national team due to everything that is happening, and I think it will be difficult to sort out the Pique situation," Busquets told Cadena Ser.

"There has been no meeting, in particular, to deal with the Pique situation.

"I do not know if (captain Sergio) Ramos and Pique have spoken, but it is not a usual situation.

"As for Pique, he seems the same as ever."

Spain Training Cut Short After Player Insults

The FC Barcelona defender has made 91 appearances for Spain, scoring five goals.
