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.

Barca Coach Explains Dembele Snub

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.

suarez is a bit of a bully, and i think messi also, even when Vidal tried to take a bit of responsibility in one of the past games suarez's reaction was of a person who had expectations , but suarez doesnt do that when Messi decides take take on 3 defenders, i really dembele but i think he deserves better, suarez, coutinho were under performing at some stage and nobody said anything but as soon as dembele loses the ball kukhala zothi
