If there is one thing everyone knows about La Liga it’s that Real Madrid and Barcelona are huge rivals.
The two teams hate each other, what with Madrid seeing themselves as the ‘nation’s team’ and Barcelona the outfit of the Catalan.
And you’d expect the players on both sides to share this disdain for the opposition – and well, for the most part, they generally do.
However, according to Chelsea striker Diego Costa, there are two rival players who are actually best friends, Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos.
In an interview with Cadena Ser, Costa spoke about the Spain team and admitted: “Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique love each other!”
What makes this so interesting is that the respective players have represented their domestic clubs for years, so know all there is to know about the rivalry.
But at the same time they have also played alongside each other for a very long time for the Spain national team, and well, their friendship probably makes sense.
