Barcelona star Gerard Pique has revealed that he decided to cancel an interview as he did not want to break one of Xavi Hernandez's rules.
Pique was scheduled to do an interview on Spanish show El Hormiguero but decided to cancel the interview after Xavi arrived at the Camp Nou as the Blaugrana's new manager last week.
The Spanish defender revealed that players have to inform the manager before they travel anyway, and that he made the decision to cancel the interview instead.
"People have their opinion because the media say 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 cancelled 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."
