Gerard Pique was brought back to the Camp Nou by Guardiola after spending the early part of his career at Manchester United.

Pique established himself as a starter in Guardiola's first season, but the defender claims the famous coach lost faith in him in 2012.

"Everything seemed to fall apart in 2012. I don't know why. Perhaps I had lost the fear that drove me to that level. But for whatever reason, I started questioning myself. As the season went on, Pep started to lose faith in me," Pique said in The Players Tribune.

"For the first three seasons, we had a phenomenal relationship. I still revere Pep as a manager. But the truth is, it was an extremely hard time.

"He wanted his players to be obsessed with football 24 hours a day, and at that point in my life, I didn't understand it. I wasn't as committed to that philosophy. Pep simply didn't trust me anymore, and the crucial moment was when he decided not to play me against Real Madrid in the league.

"That was crushing to me. I started to think, is this it? Is the dream of playing for Barca over? Is this how fast it can go away?"
