Gerard Pique said that the team has no problems with Barcelona assistant manager Eder Sarabia.

Sarabia has come under scrutiny due to his emotional outbursts on the touchline.

"When the club is being weak, these types of things rise up. A few weeks ago, the talk was about the players not having a huddle before the game and it was because of the change of coach, just like the warm-up was different. It's the same thing. [Sarabia's behaviour] is completely normal," said Pique.

"The assistant coach is full of adrenaline, it's all completely normal for us. The boss apologised and we told him that it wasn't because of us; in any case it was because of the image of the club. We really don't care; in fact, we like that there's intensity in the dugout and they're living [the game] too."

Barcelona returned to the top of the table following a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad.
