Every action has its consequence, and the consequence for Pique’s action against the assistant referee on Monday, which resulted in a red card, is a four-match ban.
Barcelona will be left without Gerard Pique for four matches after he spat obscenities at the assistant referee.
Referee Carballo’s post-match report claims that the foulmouthed Spaniard was heard saying “I s*** on your w**** mother” at the assistant referee, who refused to support his offside claim.
Pique apologized on Tuesday, claiming he never said those things, with Barcelona backing his claim. This didn’t stop RFEF from handing him a four-match ban
His offence warranted a minimum of four matches ban and a maximum of twelve matches. He got the minimum.
