Pique has come out in support of Sarabia following his controversial outbursts in the Clasico.
"When the club is being weak, these types of things rise up," Pique said about the situation.
"A few weeks ago, the talk was about the players not having a huddle before the game and it was because of the change of coach, just like the warm-up was different.
"It's the same thing.
"[Sarabia's behaviour] is completely normal.
"The assistant coach is full of adrenaline, it's all completely normal for us.
"The boss apologised and we told him that it wasn't because of us; in any case it was because of the image of the club.
"We really don't care; in fact, we like that there's intensity in the dugout and they're living [the game] too.
"We always have to go out to disprove it, then we go out and nothing else."
