< /i> Piqué's clandestine party

At 35, Gerard PiquéHe played his last game as a professional footballer: it was in Barcelona's 2-0 victory against Almería, for the Spanish League. Before and after, the Camp Nou was moved by the final touches of the defender who won 30 titles at the Blaugrana and marked an era, beyond the fact that in recent years the name has sustained him and he has been involved in many extra-sports conflicts, such as his scandalous separation from the singer Shakira.

However, hours after announcing his dismissal when he still had a valid contract with the culé cast, the center-back organized a “clandestine party” to entertain the entire Barsa squad in a famous dance venue in Catalonia . The information was provided by the chronicler and paparazzi Jordi Martin, who also accessed images of the celebration and they were published in the TV program Socialité.

The party took place in an uncomfortable context for the squad: they have just stumbled on the main objective of the season, given that they did not advance to the knockout stages of the Champions League (they will continue their path in the continent's second-order competition, the Europe League). However, after the victory against Viktoria Plzen the event was held “when at twelve o'clock at night all the players must be home and they went to this private party”, according to the description of the journalist.

“Piqué has returned to his old ways and has gone out partying again, at dawn, in Barcelona”, the paparazzi prefaced his report, who also recounted how the now ex-footballer managed to empty a place full of people having fun to transform the evening into an exclusive celebration.

According to Martin's story, the owners of the place informed the attendees that they had to be evacuated because the tray of the DJ had been damaged and they were no longer going to be able to fix it. “They told us that we did not have to pay for any drinks, that we should leave the premises because the DJ table had been broken”, was one of the testimonies he collected.

“ When the customers left the premises, who was outside to prepare to enter? The Barcelona players”, added the same voice. After the party, there were rumors of friction between Piqué and his new partner, Clara Chía Martí , 12 years younger and an employee of his company, Kosmos. The versions grew because he was not present at the Camp Nou at the time of his farewell (the children of Gerard and Shakira, Sasha and Milan, did). Was his absence from her a gesture not to ignite the controversy or a sign that there is an incipient crisis?

Martin assured that the relationship continues. “They are in a good moment. I have information that they will soon go on a trip together ”, he stressed, dismissing the short circuits. Piqué's retirement and his last performance were also linked to controversy.
