Pique blasts Griezmann as "motherf*****" during astonishing Barcelona clash

Gerard Pique branded Antoine Griezmann a "motherf*****" during a remarkable exchange as Barcelona capitulated against Paris Saint-Germain.

The incident took place late in the first-half with the scores locked at 1-1 after Lionel Messi's opener and Kylian Mbappe's equaliser.

It happened when PSG were pushing to take the lead in the tie, and it was caught by one of the pitch side microphones.

Long-serving defender and ex-Manchester United star Pique was not best pleased with French team mate Griezmann.

According to Marca, it began with Pique first directing his anger at the whole team over their lack of possession in the first-45.

He said: "Let's have a long possession, for f***'s sake. F***ing hell! Let's go. A f***ing long possession."

Griezmann replied: "Calm, Geri, stop shouting."

Pique: "F***ing hell Grizzi, f***'s sake."

Griezmann: "F*** you."

Pique: "No, f*** you. We're suffering and it's been like this for five minutes."

Griezmann: "Don't shout."

Fellow Frenchman Clement Lenglet then intervened to try and organise his team's defence before Pique laid into Griezmann again.

Pique slammed the 29-year-old's work rate and said: "Motherf*****, we're running like crazy."

To which Griezmann replied: "I'm running too."

The spat capped a sorry night for the La Liga giants who were powerless to stop a rampant Kylian Mbappe.

PSG's 22-year-old star hit a stunning hat-trick to effectively seal the Champions League last-16 tie in the first-leg at the Nou Camp.

Everton loanee Moises Kean added a forth late on to leave Barcelona with a mountain to climb in the second-leg next month.
