Barcelona coach Xavi clashed with Gerard Pique in front of the squad earlier this month, it has been revealed.
Sport says during Barca’s Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich, Xavi shut down Pique in the away dressing room.
Pique according to witnesses, said that “I don’t even play petanque”, alluding to the few minutes he’s played so far this season. This was heard by the coach who responded forcefully.
Xavi stopped him short by saying, “And you’re not going to get that at all”.
Pique chose not to respond to his former teammate, with the rest of the squad falling silent.
