Complaint against Gerard Piqué, dismissed

The Competition Committee has dismissed the complaint against the Barça defender brought forth by the Referees Technical Committee.

The Competition Committee has closed the case on Gerard Piqué after the Referees Technical Committee filed a complaint against the FC Barcelona player. According to the final ruling, “there is neither sufficient intent nor desire from the player to qualify his actions as punishable under the Disciplinary Code of the RFEF.” Therefore, Piqué will not be penalised.

It’s worth noting that the Referees Technical Committee filed a complaint against the player when the Catalan defender made post-match statements about receiving a red card during the Barça-Sporting match (3-1) on March 3rd. (via FCBarcelona.com)
