Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has scoffed at claims the club is suffering from 'Madriditis'. Barca are facing a massive battle to successfully defend their title from Real Madrid - and Atletico Madrid.
"Madriditis? They should think about the last decade," scoffed Pique on Onda Cero. "Madrid has an extremely successful history and has won lots of trophies and nine European Cups, which makes it the best team in the last 100 years. But over the last 10-15 years Barça has been right up there and been winning loads of trophies.
"We have to remember the past though. This is a rivalry that will last forever. Both teams push each other to get better."
