On Saturday, Valencia published a regrettable tweet in which they called the referee’s performance of the match that faced Real Madrid with them as “theft” for pointing out an obvious penalty on Casemiro. The publication of the Valencian team was supported by Gerard Piqué who wrote: “Do not say it too loud then they are going to sanction you.”
Unai Emery, Villarreal coach, was asked about it in the press room after his team’s draw against Atlético Madrid: “Piqué’s penalty by hand in our stadium was clear and they didn’t whistle it. Then Piqué went saying that it was not a penalty and now getting into Real Madrid-Valencia on Twitter. Well, he must be sincere. Don’t confuse people,” said the Basque coach.
