Barcelona coach Setien risks Pique wrath over wet weather training: Cancel it!

Barcelona coach Quique Setien has risked the wrath of Gerard Pique by having the squad train in the RAIN yesterday.

Setien has promised to take the squad he's inherited back to basics and this includes having his multi-millionaire players train in cold weather.

AS reports with it teeming down yesterday afternoon, the players were stunned when ordered to join Setien on the Tito Vilanova training pitch. They had expected to stay indoors, but instead were put through their paces in the wet.

Upon leaving the locker room and entering the pitch, Pique was overheard moaning, "We could at least have cancelled training!". However, several others sought to motivate eachother, shouting "C'mon! C'mon!"

Interestingly, since Setien's arrival on January 14, the players haven't had a day off - including a morning training session the day of victory over Granada.
