Pique wanted to use ex-Barcelona teammate Messi to push through calendar changes

Gerard Pique wanted to use former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi to transform Spanish football’s calendar, it has been revealed.

Following the leaked audios by El Confidencial of messages between Pique and the RFEF president Luis Rubiales, relating to taking the Spanish Supercopa to Saudi Arabia, Lionel Messi’s name has now appeared.

Pique proposed using Messi’s name to press the Players Association into pushing through his and Rubiales’ objective: modifying the LaLiga calendar and taking the Supercopa abroad.

“We have Leo who can also send (AFE president Aganzo) a video (to support their campaign) and everything,” Pique said, “or a as a club Barca can send a message from all the captains.”

Rubiales replied: “Well, condition it a bit. Not (so clear), but tell him ‘look, I’m going to send you my video, also Leo’s and what not…”

However, Sport is reporting this video with Messi as the main voice was never even recorded.
