Alfonso Aguilera Rosique, a family friend of Lionel Messi lambasted Gerard Pique
Following Gerard Pique’s claims that he cried when Leo Messi left Barcelona, Alfonso Aguilera Rosique, a friend of the Argentinian’s family, lambasted the defender in an Instagram story. Pique told Joan Laporta to sell the number 10 and he labelled him “false” and “arrogant.”
Alfonso Aguilera Rosique Lionel Messi Family Friend Lashes Out At Gerard Pique
For fans and teammates, Leo Messi’s departure from Barcelona is bittersweet. One of them, Gerard Pique, publicly expressed his sadness over his leaving, but a family friend argued his remarks were untrue and hypocritical. Alfonso Aguilera Rosique lambasted the centre-back in an Instagram story with a screenshot of Sport’s publication.
“Pique: ‘I cried when Messi left Barca,” read the headline. This did not sit well with Aguilera. You’re so phoney and arrogant, Gerard Pique (whose account he tagged), that you not only didn’t cry, but you also informed the mediocre Joan Laporta (who he also tagged) that he had to trade Leo Messi if he wanted to construct a successful squad.”
“The same Messi who rescued you from Zaragoza when no one else wanted you because you had grudges, was jealous, and a lousy teammate,” he added. He was referring to the defender’s time at La Romareda as a young player at La Masia. He became a significant player for Barcelona a few years later.
Aguilera’s rage, in any case, sparked outrage on social media. Many supporters wondered if Messi and Pique had ever had a good connection. Or what had happened between them for Pique to allegedly beg Laporta to sell a club legend.
Przyjaciel rodziny Leo Messiego na Insta: "Piqué, jesteś taki fałszywy. Nie tylko nie płakałeś (kiedy Leo odszedł). Powiedziałeś Laporcie, że jeśli chce zbudować zwycięską drużynę, musi sprzedać Messiego. Ten sam Messi, który uratował cię od Saragossy, kiedy nikt cię nie chciał." pic.twitter.com/uZQf0mZKdL

Messi-Pique Relationship: Why Is Lionel Messi’s Relationship with Gerard Pique So Cold?
Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain was in Spain for FC Barcelona manager Xavi’s birthday dinner. Despite his closeness to his former colleagues, a Catalan television station said that Messi does not get along with Gerard Pique.
Messi and Pique have been at odds since the 34-year-old took a late pay cut in August. It was just days after the Argentinian left for PSG, according to Esport3 (via RMC Sport). According to the story, Pique opted to make this gesture too late and too little, which angered Messi. It could have helped keep Messi at Barça if the Spanish defender had done it earlier.
According to journalist Lluis Canut, Messi’s friends from his time at Barcelona, including Xavi, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets, were present for Xavi’s dinner party.
However, the relationship between Messi and Pique deteriorated afterPique renewed with a pay cut. Messi was hurt. He felt duped by Pique since he didn’t do anything until after Messi had left Barca. He believes it should have been done before he left to try to prevent his departure.”
