After Gerard Pique’s sloppy clearance led to a goal for Valencia’s Ezequiel Garay in the second minute, the Barcelona defender lashed out at those who criticise him.
The number three made the error after another mistake against Leganes gifted the minnows a winner.
“I know that there are many people who are hoping that things don’t go well for me,” he raged.
“They can enjoy it, they should come out of their caves and enjoy the sun.
“There are many people waiting for me and want to go for me.
“When we concede a goal it’s my fault, there are people who are waiting for me, but not only in Madrid.
“The TV can take advantage, come out of the cave, because this is going to change.”
Pique will now have an extended break having retired from international duty.
