Pique praises Sociedad pair

Gerard Pique has surprisingly praised Real Sociedad players Antoine Griezmann and Imanol Agirretxe via his Twitter account.

The Barcelona defender was believed to have been watching Saturday’s Real Sociedad-Celta Vigo clash on television when he tweeted following Agirretxe’s 53rd-minute equaliser at Anoeta.

“Very good goal from Real. Griezmann, looking like Messi, drawing defenders then giving an assist to Agirretxe. 1-1,” he wrote.

Pique followed this up with another tweet when Agirretxe got his second, and what turned out to be the winner, on the hour mark. It suggested the Spanish international has a thorough knowledge of Spanish football.

“A second from Agirretxe. In the first La Liga match of last season I think he also scored two goals in Gijon.”
