Gerard Piqué has claimed the Barcelona dressing room is still united despite the ongoing conflict between Lionel Messi and director of football Eric Abidal, saying the club are focused on retaining La Liga and winning the Champions League.
"Everyone knows what they have done well and what they have not and now we must keep working. We need to stop biting our nose to spite our face because that won't help us.
"We built this club on victories and we must do that again. We are working towards doing that, we are playing better, we're adapting to the ideas of the coach and the dressing room is as united as ever, I assure you."
Pique was then asked why the traditional Barcelona pre-match huddle has been seen less frequently this season. Some pointed to that as a sign that things are not quite right at Camp Nou.
Piqué responded: "Sometimes we haven't done the huddle because we have new coaches and we end the warm-up differently.
"We did it today. We're calm in the dressing room, looking forward to the most beautiful part of the season. We have the team to win the two trophies left."
