“It looks that the first player to abide by the Xavi’s rules is Gerard Pique,” Journalist Jordi Costa said on CAT Radio.
“It’s a good sign that one of the leaders is trying to set an example for the rest of the players.”
Pique was among the first players to arrive for training on Wednesday.
Despite Xavi reportedly cancelling Pique’s planned interview with ‘El Hormiguero’ – which would have seen him travel to Madrid for the show.
As a reminder, Pique, 34, is one of the senior members of the squad.
He even played with Xavi for seven years, before the current Barcelona gaffer left for Qatar in 2015
