Barcelona manager cancels Pique’s extra-curricular activities, calls for discipline

Former teammates of Xavi Hernandez at Barcelona are finding out that the new manager won’t go easy on them despite the fact that they once shared the dressing room. It has recently been revealed that the coach has forbidden Gerard Pique from appearing in a popular Spanish TV show.

The central defender is a well-loved public figure in Spain, and is known to have numerous appearances outside of his work for the club. According to Marca, he was scheduled to appear in an episode of variety show “El Hormiguero” next week. The show is famous for having guests participate in fun, lighthearted games and challenges.

The said appearance has now been cancelled, with Xavi determined to keep players focused on the ongoing season. Pique was not given an exception, despite the ongoing international break. His old friend is a stickler for discipline, and it is something that will be imposed on the entire squad.
