​Barcelona centre-half Gerard Pique and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos haven't enjoyed the best relationship in the past, but they put their rivalry aside on Tuesday night while taking on France with Spain's national team.

Pique, 30, and Ramos, 31, shared a joke in the tunnel before the 2-0 win over France, both giggling and tapping each other on the shoulder before leading their side out at the Stade de France Stadium.

In the past Pique and Ramos have clashed both on and off the pitch, with the Barcelona defender regularly poking fun at his Spain teammate on social-media.

But Chelsea striker Diego Costa dismissed rumours claiming that the pair were enemies, stating that ' Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique love each other', he told the Daily Mirror .


Pique took the chance after the game to launch a dig at Real Madrid, criticising  the way in which they operate as a club.

He told ​Marca: "I don't like the values Real Madrid transmit, although there are players there I really appreciate with and am friends with.

"I don't doubt Raul's madridismo and I'd never work at Real Madrid. What I don't like about Real Madrid is how those in the box seats pull the strings.

"I don't like what they transmit, as a club, what do you want me to tell you.

"Almost all of them are friends and I can play cards with them but we know how this works."
