Espanyol Troll Piqué With Satirical Tweet
Amidst the latest buzz of Neymar’s anticipated signing with PSG from Barcelona, RCD Espanyol apparently took a dig at their city rivals with a sarcastic tweet.

Espanyol posted a tweet earlier in the day with a photograph of a referee along with the caption, “He stays.” The tweet is expected to be a mimicry of Gerard Piqué’s post in which the Spanish international was seen with his arms wrapped around Neymar, accompanied by a similar caption.

The tweet is also hilarious, in the context that the Catalan giants have been often accused of being favoured by the referees.
Espanyol, who finished 8th in the last season, will start their 2017-18 La Liga campaign with an away trip to Sevilla.
