Gerard Pique met with Shakira chants and 'Waka Waka' singalongs in Madrid

Gerard Pique met with Shakira chants and 'Waka Waka' singalongs in Madrid

Gerard Pique was trolled by fans ahead of the Kings League event at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

Gerard Pique was drowned out with chants about his ex Shakira by hundreds of fans in Madrid, before her song 'Waka Waka' was belted out.

The former Barcelona and Spain has been in the Spanish capital for the latest big event for his 'Kings League' seven-a-side tournament, held at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano.

He appeared to be at a Madrid nightclub on Saturday night and was on stage with a microphone in hand conducting a speech.

But he encountered major difficulties in addressing the crowd as the crowd loudly chanted the name of the mother of his children.

A slew of clips were shared online, with Pique struggling to speak such was the noise of those in the club. The 'Waka Waka' anthem, which was the 2010 World Cup song and led to Pique and Shakira meeting one another, was played over the tannoy.

It has been suggested that La Roja's legendary former goalkeeper Iker Casillas, who is involved in the Kings League, requested the track because of its significance to the triumph in South Africa.

A recent report from publication El Nacional de Cataluna sensationally claimed that Pique and new girlfriend, Clara Chia, requested that the DJ didn't play any Shakira songs when they visited the Uniq nightclub in Andorra.

However, at the Kings League event, Colombian singer Manuel Turizo did a version of her song 'Copa Vacía'.

Pique and Shakira were together for 11 years but endured an incredible toxic break-up that included diss tracks and seven-month custody battles in regards to their children Milan and Sasha.

On a recent Twitch stream with friend and business partner Ibai Llanos, Shakira's name was brought up unexpectedly and Pique took issue with it.

He said: "Do you guys realize? Then you say ‘beat, beat, beat.’ It has nothing to do with the topic; you’ve brought it up”

Romero is not telling you off, but they would have to tell you off by hand. It’s an issue that has nothing to do, the sanctions with what you have taken out."
