Victoriano Sánchez Arminio, president of the referee committee (Comité Técnico de Árbitros, CTA), has announced that they have already filed a complaint against FC Barcelona star, Gerard Piqué. According to Sport, the CTA has sent a letter to the Spanish Football Federation filing a double complaint for the words used by the central defender following the conclusion of the Copa del Rey defeat to Athletic Bilbao, and the most recent Liga game against Villarreal.

Cup frustration runneth over

The first complaint has been filed after comments made by the Spanish defender following incidents in the Athletic cup game - a possible penalty foul on Neymar and the aggression shown by Aduriz to Umtiti. In response to these Piqué was heard saying, "we already know how this works".

Drawing the same conclusion

The second comes on the back of his words, and actions, after the game against Villarreal. "Every week the referees show me to be right," said the Blaugrana after the game where his side had two penalty claims waved away.
