Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué criticized the press for their treatment to Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho saying he was allowed to do anything when he was winning. “It’s funny when I read the press many times,” Pique said. “When Mou [Mourinho] was winning, he was allowed to do anything. When Real Madrid came to Camp Nou, he poked Tito [Vilanova] in the eye, and how many games was he suspended? “Now that he is benching Iker [Casillas] or puts a colleague of yours in a room, he is criticized. It’s not fair. Mou has always been like that. The problem is that when he was winning, he was permitted anything and now is not the case anymore. I don’t think the press should be this way. And this goes also for Barcelona press. “It seems that we will never lose, but that will happen. When a journalist loses his impartiality, is when things are done wrong. I speak to both sides, it is not a criticism only to Madrid [press],” he added. The 25-year old still thinks Real Madrid should not be dismissed from the league title race yet, despite the 18-point difference with Barcelona. “Until Real Madrid mathematically has no options, it will be a great rival,” he said. The Spain international talked about the great moment of his team but said it is not good to have a sensation of invincibility. “The limit is never reached and now we are back to a good level of play,” he continued. “We cannot have a sense of being invincible. The team is prepared to receive compliments, but they do more harm than good. This year we can play with many alternatives. We have a very good and competitive squad.” For more sports news, visit Terra.com.
