Barcelona defender Pique: Chelsea defeat was end for Pep

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says the players believe defeat to Chelsea in last season's Champions League convinced Pep Guardiola to leave.

Chelsea knocked Barca out of the semis ahead of going onto winning the competition.

"We were left with the feeling that if we had beaten Chelsea in the semi-finals and then gone on to win the Champions League, we could have convinced him to stay another year. You never know," said Pique.
