Barcelona defender Gerard Piquet has been threatened with disqualification after criticism from the judges, reports Sport.es. In a recent interview, the footballer said that the majority of the Spanish referees support Real Madrid.
The Spanish Football Federation became interested in Piquet’s statement. The organization will assess whether the player’s statement casts doubt on the integrity of the Spanish referees. If such a decision is made, the case will be referred to a special committee that will take action against the player.
For open criticism of the judges in the media, Pique will face a fine of up to 3 thousand euros, or disqualification for a period of 4 to 12 matches.
