'Shakira banner is horrible, it damages your eyes' - Barcelona mayor slams Espanyol fans

'Shakira banner is horrible, it damages your eyes' - Barcelona mayor slams Espanyol fans



The banner targeting Gerard Pique's wife during the Copa del Rey second-leg was indicative of a "macho culture", according to mayor Ada Colau
Barcelona city mayor Ada Colau has criticised a derogatory banner held up by Espanyol fans targeting the popstar partner of Gerard Pique during Wednesday's Copa del Rey match.
Pique has been the target of abuse from Espanyol previously and he mocked the club's supporters for not being able to fill their ground following Barca's 4-1 first-leg triumph at Camp Nou.

In retaliation, the home fans held a banner which read "Shakira es de todos", which translates as "Shakira is everyone's" and, speaking to RAC1, Colau lambasted those responsible.
"To look at it damages your eyes," she said. "I find it horrible.
"There are certain macho cultural values that can generate macho violence."
Barcelona's club president Josep Maria Bertomeu called on the match officials to ensure action was taken over banners among Espanyol supporters.
These also included a sign praising goalkeeper Pau Lopez for appearing to stamp on star forward Lionel Messi during the first leg, reading "Pau, your foot shows us the way."
"I haven't seen the banners but they told me about them," Bartomeu told Sport.

"It's what we talked about before the game, the referee will have to take note and add it to his report."
