- Real Madrid won the Champions League for the last time in 2022, when they defeated Liverpool in final.
- Barcelona’s Gerard Pique said that the win will not be remembered
- Carlo Ancelotti strongly disagrees with this assessment
Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti responded to Barcelona legend Gerard Pique for his disparaging remarks about the 2022 Champions League victory.
Los Blancos won the title of kings in Europe for the record 14th consecutive time, beating Liverpool by a 1-0 margin at the conclusion of the 2021/22 season. The Stade de France was the venue for the final, where they defeated Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain with remarkable comebacks. They also fought back against holders Chelsea to reach the semifinals.
Pique, who will retire from the game of football in 2022, said that Real Madrid’s recent European triumphs would be forgotten, particularly when compared with Barcelona’s.

Pique said that the current version Real Madrid is more or less the same. They don’t get much inspiration but they do well in competitions. In February, we will know if they are alive and when it comes to the Champions League.
I always tell people that our ways of working and the expectations we set for ourselves are what make us memorable. When they win it’s just another game. “The last match, which was an amazing miracle, because the other team had been inferior each time, will not be remembered.”
Ancelotti, who was then asked about Pique’s remarks by Cadena CoPE, did not like the Italian’s response.
“Pique is in his own world and not Real Madrid’s. There is no Real Madrid fan that can ever forget their 14th European Cup victory. The Champions League will live on forever,” Ancelotti stated.
