Pique reacts to Xavi's 'strict' rules


Following reports that FC Barcelona's new boss Xavi Hernandez has imposed 10 strict rules for his players to follow, his former teammate Gerard Pique has now seemingly reacted to some of the changes.     

Xavi was unveiled as the Catalan giant's new head coach on Monday, and the former Al-Sadd manager immediately expressed his thoughts about how discipline was a value that is needed in order to get the club back to the top.  

Diario AS has since reported that Xavi wasted no time in implementing some changes, giving his side 10 rules that they have to follow.

Two of the rules are said to be "players must maintain a good image" and "players' activities outside the pitch will be monitored".  

According to Football Espana, Pique has now seeminly reacted to the two aforementioned rules by cancelling an appearance on a well-known Spanish TV show he had initially scheduled for next week.

The show, El Hormiguero, is said to be a light-hearted TV programme known for its humorous approach, in which guests partake in a number of games and challenges.

The former Manchester United defender could struggle with the new rules, though, as he tends to spend a large amount of time in the public eye, especially after starting his own Twitch channel this year.  

The 34-year-old often goes live with his followers along with popular Spanish streamer Ibai Llanos, and their interviews have become a hit on social media.
