pique-jerseyBased on remarks and com­ments from the media, Ger­ard Pique announces Spain nation­al team retire­ment after 2018 World Cup. The play­er revealed his inten­tion when he spoke to the media after the Span­ish game against Alba­nia that end­ed 2–0 win for Spain.

After the 2018 World Cup will fol­low my retire­ment, I’ll stop play­ing for the Spain nation­al team. I’ve made this deci­sion long time ago, it’s not a choice I had to make with this peri­od of con­tro­ver­sy. I’ve always giv­en my all on the pitch, although some peo­ple are real­ly grate­ful, while some don’t want me to play,” said the defend­er.

Among every out­rage linked with the Bar­ca man, the lat­est involves him cut­ting the sleeves on his jer­sey just to get the Span­ish flag off the white jer­sey in which he wore against Alba­nia. “I’ve always played in long sleeves, I was both­ered because they were a lit­tle short. So I had to cut it, this con­tro­ver­sy is just fun­ny and unjust.”

For a long time now, Pique have being whis­tled and booed because he sup­port­ed the break­away of Catalun­ya.
