‘Doesn’t rate him’: Fans react as Messi ‘refuses’ to wish Pique a happy retirement on social media

'Doesn't rate him': Fans react as Messi 'refuses' to wish Pique a happy retirement on social media

It’s been almost four days since Gerard Piquecame out to announce his retirement from football. Encomiums followed the announcement with superstars around the world hailing the Spaniard as a true legend of the game.

But Lionel Messi has conspicuously kept mum on social media over Pique’s retirement – let’s not forget they were teammates for nearly a decade.

According to L’Equipe, Messi’s entourage asked the legend to post a social media message for Pique after the defender announced his retirement but Leo refused.

Here’s what fans are saying on Twitter about the matter:

OGi: “Messi ain’t posted anything on insta about Pique’s retirement yet? That’s my goat.”

Football FC: “Iniesta haven’t posted one thing on Pique’s retirement. Luis Suarez hasn’t posted anything. But Messi is the one getting trolled.

Sami: “Messi gave a farewell to Arturo Vidal but didn’t post a single thing about Pique. He doesn’t rate Pique. No worries Messi always knew Ramos is miles ahead of Pique. Now he’s playing with Ramos he’ll write a long essay for Goatmos when he retires.”

Xabhi: “Messi even posted a farewell message for Ander Herreara at PSG. If he hasn’t posted about Pique yet, it’s just Leo confirming Pique had some rift with him.”

Messi could still post a message for the veteran defender, or he may have done it already in private.

However, it’s taken too long already and eyebrows are raised.
