Barcelona defender Pique confronted ref after Lenglet dismissal

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique confronted ref Jesus Gil Manzano at halftime of their draw with Girona on Sunday.

Manzano sent off Clement Lenglet midway through the first-half.

Movistar captured Pique speaking to Manzano in the tunnel at halftime about the decision.

"It is very clear, do you really believe that there was intention..? " queried Piqué, referring to Lenglet's elbow.

The ref replied: "It is not that the elbow is like that but that he moves it..."

Pique was unconvinced and is quoted: "It's true the record already speaks for itself."
