Gerard Pique mocks Shakira’s diss song as he reveals he’s inked a sponsorship deal with Casio
Gerard Pique mocks his former partner Shakira’s diss song aimed at him as he announces his 7v7 league has struck a sponsorship deal with Casio… after she swiped at his new girlfriend, that he was downgraded from a Rolex!
Gerard Pique has welcomed Shakira’s diss song in good spirits after revealing his 7v7 league has struck a sponsorship deal with Casio.
Shakira and former Barcelona and Spain defender Pique announced their split in June after 11 years together and they share two sons – Milan and Sasha.
The 45-year-old singer took a dig at her ex and his new girlfriend Clara Chia Marti in the lyrics of her latest song. The singer-songwriter makes it crystal clear that she’s referring to the 23-year-old, who her former partner is rumored to have started dating last year before their split, saying: “I’m worth two twenties. They exchanged a Ferrari for a Twingo. You traded in a Rolex for a Casio.”

Pique appeared on a King’s League stream on Friday, where he gave a response to Shakira for his 7-on-7 league of which he is president.
During the stream, he showed off a watch on his wrist and said, “Casio sent us wristwatches.
‘We have a sponsorship agreement with Casio, the King’s League has signed a contract with Casio.’

Those who streamed with Pique couldn’t stop laughing at his snarky comment on Shakira’s diss song, while his former teammate and ex-Man City star Sergio Agüero sang “Casio” on the video wall behind him.
Pique then added that “this watch will last a lifetime,” before fellow streamer Ibai Llanos commented, “You must be kidding,” as the retired defender gave everyone on set a watch.
Aguero then joined in the fun when asked why Pique made the announcement – explaining that his former teammate was “annihilated” by Shakira.

Shakira’s other insults to Pique in her song included that he needed to “work out his brain”.
He said: “It was because of Shakira’s song. I think that’s why Casio sponsors us. Pique was annihilated by this song.
Shakira’s song was full of digs at the 35-year-old, who also played for Manchester United earlier in his career.
One of the lyrics in the songs read, “Lots of gyms. But also work on your brain a bit.’
Shakira clearly alludes to Clara with the lyrics: “She has the name of a good person. It’s clearly not what it sounds like.’
Another part of the song says, “From love to hate there’s only one step,” before Shakira adds, “No hard feelings baby, I wish you the best with my supposed replacement.”
Only a small portion of the lyrics were leaked online ahead of the worldwide release, referring to part of the song where the mother-of-two sings, “I’m too big for you, that’s why you’re with someone like you,” before he continues: “I will not come back to you even if you cry or beg.”
