Xavi Hernandez's treatment of two unwanted players': Memphis Depay is loved, Gerard Pique is thrown out

The atmosphere in the Barcelona squad began to change, some in a positive direction and some in a negative direction. This change occurred in the attitude shown by Gerard Pique and Memphis Depay.

Pique and Depay are two players that Barcelona does not want this season. However, both of them remained part of the team because no club was willing to accommodate them.

Without the guarantee of playing many minutes, these two players are still given the opportunity to appear in the Spanish League this season. Pique had played once, while Depay twice.

From those minimal opportunities, manager Xavi Hernandez was more impressed with Depay's mentality than Pique. Even for Pique, the player who has served for a long time at Barcelona is now given a serious warning.


In Mundo Deportivo's report, Xavi was impressed by the mentality shown by Depay. Even though it was time to split up, the player still showed a good appearance and attitude.

That's the reason Depay was given the opportunity to play in the early minutes. Not just once, but in two consecutive matches against Cadiz and Elche.

In the match against Elche he proved his worth. He scored his first goal of the season.


Unlike the case with Pique, Xavi actually gave a stern warning. The manager heard Pique complain about the lack of playing time.

Indeed, Pique, who has served for a long time at Barcelona, ​​only got one chance to play against Cadiz. The rest, he just warms the bench.

Conditions between the two figures are believed to be heating up. Xavi, as reported by Sport, even gave a warning, "It means you [Pique] will be playing less and less this season".
