Messi has been critical of Pique over accusations leveled at the board.
"Messi is our captain and he has his say," Pique explained.
"But I think his words are in line with those of the dressing room.
"I don't think there's an issue with coordination or anything."
"More than fear, it was a possibility," Pique said.
"It's true that we discussed it in the dressing room but in the end it was Neymar's decision.
"In the end he stayed and I hope he does his best. My relationship with Neymar is fantastic."
