The careers of Leo Messi and Gerard Pique have been intertwined for years.

The two grew up in "La Masia" the famous youth department of Barcelona.

Although Pique left for Manchester United, he returned to Barca and was Messi's partner for the best years of the club.

But since Messi left Barca there have been several reports that the two don't really like each other.



According to several reports in Catalonia, Pique was even the one who pushed to "get rid" of Messi to ease the club's financial burden.

Fika, who himself received quite a bit of criticism for his unprofessional attitude and his fat salary, has already had time to retire from football and since then he has mainly been busy with his private business, the local league he founded and in between fights with his ex-wife Shakira.

Has their relationship gone awry?

Messi, on the other hand, had time to lead Argentina to a third World Cup win in what became the greatest moment of his career.

However, another hint of the conflict between the two came today when Piqué was asked by journalist John Nellis if he congratulated Messi after winning the World Cup and replied: "No, the truth is not. The last few months have been difficult for me and I had to disconnect. I didn't watch any sports, and I didn't even watch The World Cup games. It sounds crazy, but I haven't seen a single game except the final, nor the whole thing."



What is Pika so busy you ask?

The former stopper founded the King's League - a football league where celebrities and former players play mainly.

He is also very active in world tennis and in the future, who knows, maybe he will be a board member in Barcelona and maybe even the president.
