Gerard Pique Calls Antoine Griezmann ‘Motherf***er’ In Furious On-Pitch Row

Gerard Pique Calls Antoine Griezmann ‘Motherf***er’ In Furious On-Pitch Row

Gerard Pique and Antoine Griezmann had a heated on-pitch row during Barcelona's 4-1 Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

The scores were actually locked at 1-1 when the Barca defender started yelling at Griezmann in Spanish, clearly picked up by the pitch-side microphones in the empty Camp Nou at the end of the first half.

"Let's have a long possession, for f**k's sake. F**king hell! Let's go. A f**king long possession!" shouted Pique at his teammates, according to Marca's translation.

Griezmann replied: "Calm, Geri, stop shouting." To which Pique responded: "F**king hell Grizzi, f**k's s...".

Griezmann: "F**k you."

Pique: "No, f**k you. We're suffering and it's been like this for five minutes." Griezmann: "Don't shout."

At this point, Griezmann's fellow French international Clement Lenglet tried to act as peacemaker between the pair, but did not defuse the argument.

"Motherf***er, we're running like crazy," Pique shouted. Griezmann replied: "I'm running too."

Lionel Messi had actually given Barcelona the lead from the penalty spot, before Kylian Mbappe - who would go on to score a hat-trick - equalised just after the half-hour mark.

Clearly a frustrated Pique could see which way the game was going, judging by his top-volume frustration let loose on his teammates - with particular attention to Griezmann.

The lack of crowd made the blazing, foul-mouthed argument between Pique and Griezmann all the more audible.

It's impossible to know whether this was just two players desperate to win briefly letting out their anger on the pitch before making up post-match. But Griezmann has never entirely seemed to fit in since his €120 million move from Atletico Madrid in 2019.

Fans have been debating the attitude of both players on a night where Barcelona simply couldn't match their opponents and now have a mountain to climb in the second leg in Paris.
