Pique plays down RM chants

Gerard Pique has played down the controversy of Real Madrid players chanting insults to him in the aftermath of their La Liga title victory.

Footage of the Madrid players celebrating their first league title in five years showed players, including Dani Carvajal, chanting: "Pique, a******e, bow down to the champions."

"It's a known chant [among fans] and I don't consider it an insult," Pique told reporters on Wednesday.

"It was a moment of euphoria, of celebration… I have played with Carvajal, I play cards with him. I know him well and he's a good guy.

“He sent a message [after the chants] and I quickly sent him one back saying there's no problem; no need to apologise. I don't think we need to give it much importance."
