Iker Casillas delivers brutal response in Twitter exchange with Barcelona's Gerard Pique

Gerard Pique has not been adorning himself to the Spanish population over the international break, particularly those in the capital.

While on duty with La Roja, the Barcelona centre-half criticised Real Madrid's hierarchy while also sniping with fellow defender Sergio Ramos despite the duo seemingly sharing some jokes in the tunnel during the Israel game.

So when Pique delivered what many thought was a kind message on Twitter to former Los Blancos goalkeeper Iker Casillas, the current FC Porto shot stopper delivered a fairly brutal assessment of the defender's predicament.

The tweet seemed harmless, Pique simply said "thank you Iker, same to you" but the goalkeeper did not deliver a heartfelt reply, far from it.

Yep, that's right, Casillas posted a humorous GIF of the priest from Scary Movie shouting "please, Lord, help me to release this demon!"

Of course, it is highly unlikely that the goalkeeper was actually referring to Pique as a demon, rather he was simply suggesting in a comedic way that he did not need his support because of his controversial comments.

There is likely no actual animosity between the duo but you have to give it to Casillas, it was a pretty good response.



The duo were two of Spain's key players during their most successful time as a footballing nation.

The pair played key roles in the Euro 2008, 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 victories, however, their last major tournament at the 2014 World Cup ended rather embarrassingly as they were eliminated in the group stage.

Now, Casillas has finally been usurped by Manchester United's David de Gea.
