Pique cancels interview to follow Xavi’s rules

Pique cancels interview to follow Xavi’s rules

FC Barcelona’s long-serving star defender Gerard Pique has led by example in following Xavi’s new charge.

As reported here on Futaa last week, the new manager reportedly applied a new list of strict golden rules since taking over from the departed Ronaldo Koeman.

Pique has revealed canceling an interview after feeling that asking Xavi for permission first was the better action.

"People have their opinion because the media says what the people want to hear," Pique told renowned Twitch streamer Ibai Llanos, as per Marca.

"If they knew the history of what happened with El Hormiguero… Xavi didn't know that I had canceled El Hormiguero.

"I had to explain to Xavi that it was El Hormiguero, he didn't know what I was speaking about.

"I had to explain it, that's true, but I cancelled it because I wanted to cancel it, because there are rules that Xavi has put in where you have to tell him before travelling and I preferred not to ask permission, and that's it."

Meanwhile, the Catalan giants are training for their next battle against Espanyol this weekend.
