FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique took a shot at his club as he feels that his teammate and compatriot Cesc Fabregas has been unfairly treated as of late.
"I really like Cesc and I know he is going through a tough time because the club don't appreciate him as much as they should," Pique told Sky Sports.

"He is one of those players who would be first-choice at any other club in the world, the star of the team.
"Despite that, he is finding it harder at Barca. I don't know what he is going to do; we haven't spoken about that."
The 27-year-old former Arsenal captain tallied a total of 22 assists during the 2013/14 season for the Blaugrana, while also having a knack for goals, with 13 under his name.
"I hope he stays because if you look at his stats this season, he is our highest-scoring midfielder and the one with the most assists. Of course I want him to stay with us," he added.
