A young and nascant Gerard Piqué switched his youth academy from La Masia to the Theater of Dreams in 2004, the same year he was promoted to the senior team. However, the present pillar of defense in FC Barcelona and the Spanish national team, it was the spell under Sir Alex Ferguson that made Piqué what he is today. And that includes two bizarre incidents with his former gaffer.
Starring in Barça’s brand new documentary series ‘Matchday’, the 32 year old recollected his memories at Old Trafford, and dug up some really strange menaces he got himself into, and that even includes a couple of visit to the cops.
The 2010 World Cup winner said: “Some really dark moments in (Manchester). I ended up in the police station more than once. Best not to go into that, it was when I was young. I was there and I wasn’t anybody.”
Even still, probably the more daring job Piqué did was to send Fergie into a fit of rage!
“I rented a house from Sir Alex…And I bought a rabbit and it destroyed the house. It bit all the seats, everything. And when I left, he called me, (he was) raging.” he added.
And after a hard party on the eve of Christmas, he did it again, so much in fact, Sir Alex injured himself.
he continues- “The next day Sir Alex was waiting for us in the dressing room. We got a real scolding. There was an aluminum chair and he kicked it but unfortunately with his shin. You could see him start limping. He’d destroyed his leg. It was spectacular. From there on they stopped with the Christmas party.”
