With reports on the weekend stating that Ousmane Dembele did not arrive for FC Barcelona training last Thursday, Gerard Pique has since commented on his teammate's ill-discipline.
It is rumoured that Dembele's colleagues and coaches at the Catalan giants are not impressed with him after he reportedly missed training on Thursday.
The Frenchman was apparently unreachable for almost two hours as the club tried to find his whereabouts, and was thus left out of Barca's squad for their match against Real Betis on Sunday.
Pique has since stated that being dropped from the matchday team will hopefully get the message across to Dembele that he needs to be more disciplined.
"We were also young and we have also committed mistakes," the Spaniard said, according to Reuters.
"From experience, we have to help him to understand that football is a 24-hour job and he has to live accordingly.
"I'm convinced that he's going to improve in this respect and that decisions like the one the coach took will help him."
Barca were defeated 4-3 by Betis at the Camp Nou on Sunday, though they remain at the top of the LaLiga table.
Do you think Barca will sell Dembele if he does something like this again? Let us know in the comments section below.
