Pique Reveals How He Trolls Real Stars On Secret WhatsApp Group

FC Barcelona star Gerard Pique, who is known to be a controversial figure, has revealed how he trolled some of Real Madrid's stars via a secret WhatsApp group.

Iniesta: I Will Only Stay At Barca If...

It has been an assumption for years that players in the Spanish national team often do not see eye to eye with one another, with most believing this would be due to a fierce rivalry between the Blaugrana and Los Blancos stars.

However, in a piece Pique wrote for The Players' Tribune, he contradicted that notion, although he also owned up to the fact that he made a WhatsApp group earlier this season in order to tease teammates who play for his club's biggest arch-rivals.

"I'm going to let you in on a little inside information. Everybody knows that footballers have text groups on WhatsApp. I have one just for my friends from home, and I have another just for my Barca teammates," the Catalan star wrote.

"But my favourite one might surprise you. Earlier this season, when we were already eight or nine points clear of Real Madrid in the league, I started a special group for some of the guys on the Spanish national team who play for Real Madrid and Barcelona.

"If you only read what the media says, you would think that we hate one another. But, in fact, we all get along really well, and we text back and forth about tactics and football philosophies and even the books we're reading.

"No, come on, of course, I'm joking! All we do in that group is talk s**t to one another about Barca and Real!

"It's the best. We're just like little kids. And the truth is it's especially hilarious for me right now because now we're up 15 points on Real in the league. So I'm getting very creative in my responses.

"So I'm texting them in the WhatsApp group, 'Come on guys, why so serious?!' Then I put a little crying emoji, and a laughing emoji. I even made a special name for the group. It's called: CONGRATULATIONS.

"I can joke around with those guys, because they are my brothers on the Spanish national team. We might hate each other's clubs, but we are all playing for the same country, with the same dream, and that's something that I'm very, very proud of."
