It seems that the repercussions of referee Juan Martínez Monoeira’s decisions to award a penalty kick to Sevilla and cancel Real Madrid’s kick will not end soon.
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique entered the line and poured oil on the fire on social media.
Pique responded to a tweet by a Spanish media, which published news of the anger and objection of Zinedine Zidane, the coach of the “Royal” to the referee, and “Zizou” asked him for clarifications about the incident.

The French coach has always been proud of not discussing arbitration decisions, but he entered the pitch after the match to speak to the referee Monoeira, and said, “He told me that Militau’s shot was a handball, but he did not convince me.”
Pique tweeted – on his official Twitter account – that “through dialogue, the picture becomes clear and people understand each other.”
Pique was responding – indirectly – to criticism directed at him after the last Clásico between Barca and Real.

On that day, Pique – who was absent from the injury – entered the field and tried to clarify the referee, Gil Monzano, after the end of the match, about the reason for not adding more lost time, and the intervention of that day, Luka Modric, the Real Madrid player, said to Pique, “Do you want to protest now, how many minutes Want to add a referee? “
And it seems that the roles have changed and the magic has turned on the magician.
