It was reported that Barcelona paid Enriquez Negreira, vice-president of the Technical Committee of Referees, 1.4 million euros while he was still a member of the committee.
Pique defended Barcelona
During the seventh edition of the Chup Chup Kings, former Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique and former Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas engaged in a debate regarding the ‘Negreira case’. It was reported that Barcelona paid Enriquez Negreira, vice-president of the Technical Committee of Referees, 1.4 million euros while he was still a member of the committee. Pique defended Barcelona by stating that if they revealed the truth, Real Madrid’s name would also be implicated in UEFA and the Champions League. However, Casillas disagreed and referred to the controversial game between Barcelona and Chelsea. He also urged Pique to remain silent as he considered it to be one of the biggest robberies in football history.
Despite their differences, the debate between the former teammates did not escalate into a fight. Pique recalled a disallowed goal against Atletico Madrid which he believed had cost Barcelona a LaLiga Santander title. He also noted that historically, referees have always tended to favor the big teams, including Real Madrid and Barcelona. The official Kings League Fantasy Marca allows you to create your own team and become its president, just like Ibai Llanos, Casillas, Dj Mariio, TheGrefg, or Sergio Aguero.
