Two months have passed since Shakira attacked Gerard Piqué at Session 53 along with Bizarrap and the football player continues to avoid comments on the former teammate’s music. “Obviously I’ve heard it, but I don’t want to talk about it because it doesn’t play,” he said in an interview Tuesday on the radio show The Monday to Rac1, presented by his friend Jordi Basté. However, the former FC Barcelona player took the opportunity to attack the Colombian singer’s behavior and also question the lyrics of the song because of how it could affect the two children they have in common, Milan and Sasha. “People have a responsibility, especially those of us who are parents, to try to protect our children. I don’t want to say anything about it, everyone makes the decisions they see fit and I don’t want to talk about it anymore, because I think that in the end what matters is that my children are fine “, he settled down in his first in-depth interview after his split from Shakira in June.
He wanted to explain the controversial presence of Milan in the first broadcast of the Kings League, a competition he created that mixes football with eSports, after which the singer issued a statement guaranteeing that she had not given permission for her son to participate in the show and making it clear that it was something he didn’t agree with. “I always like him to participate in things that make him happy”, defended Piqué. “I wasn’t scheduled to attend, but he asked me out and I was delighted. And I’m proud of how he did it. But that’s it, each one makes the decisions that seem best to him. When you get older, there’s no class on how you’re supposed to be a parent.”
Regarding the personal moment he is going through, the former football player confesses to being “very well” and “happy” after the unexpected retirement, a few months ago. “The sentence I said in my farewell at the Camp Nou [’A veces querer significa dejar marchar’] pretty much summed up my state of mind. A lot was happening in my life, not just on a professional level, and you realize that sometimes you have to make the best decision for your environment. Giving up playing for Barça was not something I wanted, but I understood that I had to do it. It came out naturally”, he defended. In addition, he has taken advantage of the interview to show the face of the former team after the football scandalalso Negreiraassuring that he puts “his hand in the fire” because his club “didn’t buy any referee”.
Piqué also spoke about the delicate moment Dani Alves is experiencing, provisionally arrested since January 20 for the alleged rape of a 23-year-old girl in a Barcelona nightclub: “It’s a very complicated case. I have a great appreciation for him because I know him personally. For all of us who were his peers, it sucks. Justice has to do its job, I think we have to wait because the easiest thing nowadays is to say that he is guilty. I prefer to wait and accept what the judge says. Helping the victim in the process and nothing… it’s very complicated. As an ex-partner you have the feeling that you know him and after not knowing him you are in a state of shock. It’s a reality series. If it were true, I would be very tough.
Minutes before giving the interview, Piqué left his home in Barcelona accompanied by his new girlfriend, Clara Chía, who also feels sick in Shakira’s song with Bizarrap. But she left the truth about the marriage rumors that have surfaced in recent days in the air and ignored questions about Shakira’s much-talked about performance on Jimmy Fallon’s show, in which the artist sang the song live for the first time. Session 53 with the Argentinean DJ, while his children were part of the audience.
