Gerard Pique branded Real Valladolid’s pitch a “disgrace” after Barcelona battled to a 1-0 win on Saturday night.

It was a tough game for Ernesto Valverde’s side with Ousmane Dembele scoring the only goal of the night.

The newly-laid pitch cut up straight away, and Pique did not hold back in his opinions after the game.

“The pitch was a disgrace, it’s a real shame,” he said.

”It’s been a match played in a field, and those who want to sell the product and take matches to the United States should really look at what’s going on at home.

”It’s not a case of not being able to play football, the real issue is that there is a risk of injury to professionals, I hope those responsible for this will take action and fix it.”
