After the game in Balaídos, Gerard Piqué took no time to post a comment on social media. The Barcelona posted a simple tweet in English, borrowing a line from a song by US group, MGMT. "We were fated to pretend. To pretend".

Celta awarded a free-kick on 87 minutes
It seems that Piqué was referring to Rafinha's part in winning a free-kick awarded to Celta with three minutes of normal time remaining, from which Iago Aspas levelled the game. Piqué protested against the decision to award a free-kick, arguing that during his challenge for the ball there was no contact made with Rafinha, a former Barcelona player.

By early on Sunday morning, Piqué's tweet had already been retweeted 4.8 thousand times and given 22.5 thousand likes along with hundreds of comments and reactions - some followers included screen grabs of the incident which shows the defender's challenge on Rafinha in sequence.
