Gerard Pique Calls Out Philippe Coutinho For Lack Of Focus In Barcelona Training
Gerard Pique does not settle for anything but the best even in training and straight up called Philippe Coutinho for not pulling his weight this week.
Barca players were taking part in their usual rondo routine during a training session and Coutinho wasn't quick enough to react to a pass that came his way.
The pass wasn't a great to be fair but Pique felt the Brazilian was showing a lack of focus and as per MARCA, told him: "Come on Phil, you're not plugged in".
There's a video of the exchange and you can sense Pique's annoyance from his reaction.

Coutinho became Barcelona's club record signing when they forked out £142 million to sign him from Liverpool in January 2018 and he's scored 18 goals in 60 appearances for the club.
But the general feeling is that he has not cut it at the Nou Camp after his dream move. He's only scored four league goals this season and now finds himself out of the side following an underwhelming run of form.
Last month, after a poor display against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg Marca made the claim that the reigning La Liga champions will not rule out any offers made for the former Liverpool ace.
The Spanish newspaper reports that the club won't actively put him up for sale during the season, but are open to reviewing offers should they come in.
Should Barcelona sell Coutinho this summer?
