Gerard Pique’s relationship with Spanish central defensive partner Sergio Ramos is said to be ‘definitely broken’ amid reports he will quit the national team.
The Barcelona defender was jeered and whistled during an open Spanish training session on Monday, while fresh reports in the Spanish press suggest there has been a relationship breakdown within the squad.
Diario AS report relations between the 30-year-old and Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos are ‘definitely broken’ and will not be repaired.
Last week Ramos told reporters Pique’s tweet in support of a Catalan referendum was ‘not the best’ in an indication of the frostiness.
A separate report in Marca reports the atmosphere in the national team is ‘suffocating’ but that the central defender’s future with the team is less clear than ever.
