Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique and Villarreal boss Unai Emery have been embroiled in a war of words following some controversial referee decisions.

Valencia and Real Betis have both taken to Twitter to question decisions from officials, with the former specifically claiming to have been ‘robbed’ in their 4-1 loss at Real Madrid.

Pique couldn’t resist the chance to get involved in that, replying to Valencia’s post by saying: “Don’t say it too loudly or they’ll punish you.”

However, his comments didn’t sit well with Emery, who was quick to remind Pique that he was the one pleading ignorance a few weeks ago when he survived a handball call in a meeting with Villarreal back in November.

“What happened to Pique here was handball and a penalty, it clearly touched his hand and we lost that game,” Emery said. “Yesterday he put protests on Twitter over other teams. You have to be sincere and not confuse people.
