Barcelona defender Pique lost rag with 'fatty' Suarez during Atletico Madrid showdown

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique lost his rag with former teammate Luis Suarez during their 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

For Suarez, that meant going about his usual business and looking for goals, trying to lose the centre-backs and playing rough when he could.

One of those moments led to a heated chat with Barça goalkeeper Marc ter Stegen after he just got to the ball before the Uruguayan to punch it behind with his gloves.

In the replay, you can clearly see that the goalkeeper got to the ball first and did not touch the head of Suarez, who feigned injury afterwards.

Ter Stegen goes directly to Suarez to recriminate him for his actions and then Pique says: "That's enough, eh, fatty [gordo], f--- me."

When Suarez played for Barcelona, he was affectionately referred to as 'gordo' in reference to the stories in the media that suggested he was overweight.
