    Luis Figo has rekindled his squabble with Barcelona fans in a hilarious advert that has elicited different reactions.

    Figo was at the heart of one of the most gruesome and infamous El Clasico moments of all time in 2002, due to his move from the Catalan giants to Real Madrid.

    After joining Barcelona’s perennial rivals, Real Madrid, Figo was taking a corner in 2002 when a butchered PIG’s head was lobbed onto the turf from the stands at Camp Nou.

    The encounter was stopped for 14 minutes as referee Medina Cantelejo tried to douse the tension.

    However, 22 years after the famous occurrence, Luis Figo appears to have reignited his feud with Barcelona fans in an advert for Uber Eats.

    The footage commences with the 51-year-old reading about the unpalatable events as his window is bombarded with vegetables.

    Figo, who appears to be trying to stifle fits of laughter throughout the captivating video, then makes use of the app to search for a cooked pig’s head and plates up a delicious dinner for himself.

    The cocky Instagram post’s caption translates as: “It’s OK to play with food: this time order suckling pig from Uber Eats and leave it on the table (maybe with baked potatoes).”

    Following the original incident about 2 decades ago, Real Madrid players even claimed they saw golf balls and a knife on the turf.

    Barcelona director Gabriel Masfurro in countering those assertions suggested that the Madrid press had cooked up the whole story and had their cameramen plant the porker.

    Louis Van Gaal and Luis Figo spat following the incident

    Louis Van Gaal, who was the manager of the Catalan giants at the time, blamed Figo for hesitating in taking his corners.

    Van Gaal said: “Figo provoked the fans. He walked over to the corner really slowly, picked up the bottle slowly, went back to the corner. 

    “And all this was done consciously and deliberately, without the referee doing anything to stop it.”

    Luis Figo then gave a brutal response to the comments of Van Gaal, saying: “I don’t know if [former Barca president Joan] Gaspart is taking the p***.

    “He [Van Gaal] never said anything when he was my manager for two years. And I’ve saved his a*** more than once.”

    Figo at Real Madrid

    Figo joined Real Madrid from Barcelona on July 24, 2000, for a then world-record fee of €60 million.

    He was astonishing in Madrid, guiding the club to many successes, including; 1 UEFA Champions League (2001/02), 2 La Liga titles (2000/01, 2002/03), and 1 UEFA Super Cup (2002).

    Luis Figo also won the Ballon d’Or on December 19, 2000, after moving to Real Madrid, becoming the second Portuguese after Eusebio (1965) to do so.

    He also became the third Real Madrid player to win the award after Alfredo Di Stéfano (1957, 1959) and Raymond Kopa (1958).

    Figo made 245 appearances for Los Merengues, scoring 57 goals and providing 93 assists in all competitions.
