Gerard Pique revealed that his relationship with Pep Guardiola changed after he started dating Shakira.
\"We reached a moment of tension with him, not just me but the dressing room in general,\" Pique told La Sotana on Monday.
\"The rivalry with Jose Mourinho [at Real Madrid] wore us down a lot. Pep wanted absolute control over everything that was happening.
\"I started dating Shakira and our relationship changed. Now, the relationship is perfect. But there was a lot of pressure on me then. I felt like I had to do everything in training perfectly.
\"If there was a moment I thought about leaving Barca, it was that [2011-12] season. I struggled in that last season with Guardiola.\"
