Pique reveals Sir Alex gave him hairdryer at Man Utd after pet RABBIT ate furniture in flat he rented from great Scot
What's up Doc? A pet bunny caused all kinds of mayhem in Pique's flat

GERARD PIQUE has revealed his received an infamous Sir Alex Ferguson hairdryer… over his pet RABBIT.

The Spanish defender, 32, spent his teenage years at Old Trafford before being sold to Barcelona for £5m in 2008.

Alone in a foreign city, Pique lived in a flat that was owned by Ferguson.

The problem was he didn’t expect his new furry friend to EAT all of the manager’s prize furniture – and send the boss in a volcanic rage!

Pique laughed: “I rented the apartment from the manager, from Sir Alex. And I bought a rabbit.

“It destroyed the place. The rabbit chewed all the chairs.

“And after I’d gone, he called me one day, really annoyed. ‘This one’s really tight. A typical bloody Catalan. Money coming out of his ears but...’

“Dammit it, I was all on my own. No family or friends. I thought, a dog is too big, I’ll buy a rabbit. But Christ, the rabbit didn’t pay any attention.”

Pique, winner of 28 trophies with Barca, played only 23 matches with the Red Devils.

In 2007-08, his final season in the Premier League, he says he went on the last player’s Christmas party.

An angry Ferguson broke his leg bone by mistake when he called out the players the next morning over their late-night partying.

Pique, 32, told the Rakuten TV series Matchday – Inside FC Barcelona: “They hold the Christmas party, two or three days before Christmas just for the players. And well they go really wild. You finish training, leave the cars at the training ground.

“You get on a coach. We went to a casino. Casino, party.

“The next day we all go to the training ground and Sir Alex Ferguson is waiting for us in the changing room. Altogether for a meeting.

“He really went off on us. And there was an aluminium chair, he kicked it and unfortunately bashed his shin on it.

“He kicked the chair with his shin. And then he starts limping. He had broken his tibia.

“And from then on, no Christmas party, which had been the most traditional thing there, you know? No, it was spectacular. That was so funny.”

Pique, married to Colombian pop star Shakira, has also revealed he got into trouble more than once during his stay in Manchester.

Without giving away too many details, he said: “I had some very dark moments in this city.

“I ended up at the police station more than once. Better not to go into that. Not today. I was young, dammit.

“I was a nobody. I went by unnoticed. The city isn’t as bad as they make out.”
