It was the 65th minute of the Champions League duel between Barcelona and Dynamo Kiev, when Gerard Piqué jumped into the small area and managed to connect a ball that was embedded in the back of the net for the momentary 2-0, before the Ukrainian team sealed the 2-1.
What caught the attention was the unusual celebration of the central defender, who after getting the score walked calmly towards his teammates to hug them and, moments later, He looked for a camera, to which he made the military salute, with two fingers on the forehead that detached from the head.
When this happened, some media and followers speculated that it was an ironic gesture as a farewell for Josep María Bartomeu, who resigned as president of Barcelona a few days ago and with whom Piqué had some differences.
