Pique summoned by club after criticizing Barcelona board

Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué is expected to meet club president Josep Maria Bartomeu after openly criticizing the board.

The Spanish defender over the weekend publicly slammed the Barcelona board for their grueling pre-season the 32-year-old believes left the club ill-prepared for the 2019-20 campaign.

“The preseason did not help,” Piqué said over the weekend. “I believe that this is the year in which we have had the most trips and the least training sessions. And we notice it.

“We have to be together, the supporters and the board. When a person does not want to get angry, there are no conflicts.

The Papers

“We know the club, we know the papers that are connected to the club, we know who writes the articles, even if they are signed by another person.”

According to reports in Spain, Bartomeu is set to meet the defender discuss the matter at hand in a bid to reassure the playing unit about the state of the club.

Barcelona started their LaLiga campaign taking just one point from their first three matches on the road, finally picking up their first victory away from home on Saturday at Getafe.

Piqué has been with Barcelona since 2008 and has won 28 trophies with the club.
