Barcelona defender Pique slams Real Valladolid pitch: Shameful for a global audience

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says the LaLiga needs to act on Real Valladolid's poor pitch.

Barca won 1-0 at Valladolid amid major complaints about their ground.

Pique snapped: "If we want to sell the product outside, we should first see what's at home.

"We're shown in the United States and what is a shame is what happened: the condition of the pitch was deplorable. It is no longer a game, there is the risk of getting hurt, it is shameful.

"I hope that those responsible make decisions because it is shameful."
