Barcelona defender Gerard Pique accused of trying to unsettle PSG locker room

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has been accused of trying to unsettle the PSG locker room.

Last week, Pique volunteered the information that Barca's players went to the board about taking group pay-cuts in order to help bring Neymar back from PSG last summer.

However, Brazilian reporter Isabela Pagliari believes there was an ulterior motive behind the revelation.

"I find the statement odd at this time of the season. Pique is a poker player. With this statement, Pique tries to touch the locker room of PSG," said Pagliari.

"He knows that PSG will qualify for the Round of 16 in the Champions League and he is aware that the Barca may be an opponent of Paris in the competition."
