Pique came under fire from the press during Sunday’s 2-0 win over Albania, with some claiming he had cut the regulation short-sleeved jersey in order to remove the trim on the shirts that bears the design of the Spanish flag.

However, the 29-year-old produced proof after the match that he had in fact cut the sleeves of a shirt that did not have the same flag design, and he says the accusations have pushed him too far.

This flse argument made him so angry that he decided to quit the Spanish squad after 2018 word cup.

“Today with the sleeves is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. They’ve made it so I’ve lost the excitement of coming here, and although after Russia I’ll only be 31, I’ll leave.”-Pique said.

“The player cut his sleeves with the sole purpose of playing more comfortably, like other internationals have done on many occasions.

“Unfair criticism of Gerard Pique has caused him to declare that he will leave the Spanish team after the World Cup in Russia.”-The Royal Spanish Football Federation said.
