Gerard Pique's Incredible Story About Roy Keane Hearing His Phone Ring In The Changing Room
On this occasion, Pique was sitting amongst his teammates in the dressing room when his phone began to vibrate.
Manchester United great Roy Keane then reacted in the only way conceivable and sh*t proceeded to hit the fan.
"I wouldn't say I was scared of [Ferguson]. Roy Keane? Well, maybe that's different!" Pique said in a brilliant interview with FourFourTwo magazine.
"I remember we were in the changing room at Old Trafford and my phone started vibrating. Keano could hear the vibrations and went crazy trying to find out who the phone belonged to. That's who he was.
"Before we [Barca] beat Celtic 1-0 last season, I noticed him by the side of the pitch as a pundit as we went to warm up. I hid my face with my hand because he still scares me. I was 26 years old, and I was sh*tting myself!"
This isn't the only story Pique has reminisced in recent years.
The Spaniard once revealed that there was all sorts of antics going on behind the scenes while Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge and at one point, Patrice Evra was on the receiving end of a brutal prank.

Speaking to TV3, he said: "I'm a big fan of British humour. It was what I loved about Manchester. They don't get offended when you play tricks on them. They try to get you back, but they don't complain."
"Here at Barca, my humour hasn't always been appreciated by everyone. I deflate teammates tires and other things, but this is nothing compared to what happened at United.
"One day Patrice Evra came in with shoes that he'd been asking Nike for months to make. They had the name of his children on them and all these crazy details.
"He went into the shower and we created a small bonfire and burned them. We recorded it and then sent him the video."
Pique then revealed that he tried to continue his pranking exploits when he joined Barcelona but it didn't work. We reckon Messi and Suarez wouldn't take too kindly to their trainers being set on fire.
He continued: "In the first few years here (at Barca) I tried similar things but it didn't work. It's not the same culture.
"At United they would take an expensive shirt that you have bought and put it on the free-kick mannequins. The shirt would be ruined because of all the mud it would get on it every time the ball hit it.
"It was a dressing room full of life."
Imagine being a fly in the changing room when Roy Keane explodes after Gerard Pique's phone goes off. Priceless.
