Real Sociedad fans met Pique with some whistles at Anoeta that grew as the minutes passed. Then they chanted “Call Rubiales, Pique call Rubiales," referring to the leaked audios from his chat with RFEF president Luis Rubiales.
Pique impressed on the night in his first appearance since going off injured against Eintracht Frankfurt.
However he suffered a groin issue and struggled on through the game. Pique gave his shirt to a fan at half-time, but kept on battling, only going off in the final stages.
