Pique slams Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo

Spain defender Gerard Pique slammed Cristiano Ronaldo and accused him of being prone to “diving”. Pique was unhappy with all the fouls the superstar got and said that Ronaldo exaggerated the physical contacts.

“We had a lot more chances, but they managed to score three goals from three shots”, said the Barcelona player.

“Cristiano likes to dive”, added Pique.

The defender also backed up his teammate David De Gea after the goalkeeper was at fault for Portugal’s second goal. “He is our goalkeeper, that is clear in the dressing room. I am sure in the important moments he will be the goalkeeper we all know”, concluded Pique.
