Spanish TV Release Feature On How Gerard Pique Battles Abuse From The Stands

Spanish TV Release Feature On How Gerard Pique Battles Abuse From The Stands
By Mikey Traynor Updated

We've featured some of the videos that Spanish production companies have conjured up around important football matches before, but the latest, on Barcelona defender Gerard Pique, is perhaps the most interesting.

Usually it's all lip-readers and dramatic music to focus on some sort of narrative at a big club that is being pushed, but this time they decided to focus on how much abuse Pique gets from the stands, and how he manages to almost always block it out.

The Catalan derby last weekend, were Luis Enrique's men came away with a badly needed 3-0 win, was always going to deliver a hostile reception for many reasons, and none of them really justifiable. Spanish TV station 'Movistar' had one camera on Pique at all times to showcase how he goes about blocking out the haters, as it were.

It's shocking stuff at times, but this is every day for a player of Pique's background and stature in the game.

It's damn near impossible not to let it get to you, and that's why it's so baffling to see the surprise, and occasional disgust, when a professional footballer admits they are struggling.

Pique has learned how to rise above, judging by his elegant post-match comments, but it's interesting how a clip focusing on one player during a game can shine a light on something most would not have realised is going on.
