Xavi Hernandez, the manager of Barcelona, and Gerard Pique argued in front of the team earlier this month, according to Sport.
This allegedly occurred during their Champions League loss against Bayern Munich.
Pique is alleged to have been silenced by Xavi in the away dressing room.
Pique is believed to have said “I don’t even play petanque“, alluding to the few minutes he’s played so far this season.
This was overheard by the coach who responded forcefully.
Xavi stopped him short by saying, “And you’re not going to get that at all”.
The rest of the team fell silent as Pique opted not to speak to his former teammate.
