Gerard Pique has given a rather curious interview where he’s talked about how he’s so busy he barely has time to sleep properly.

The centre-back has plenty of interests away from football. His Kosmos company is heavily involved in a revamp of tennis’ Davis Cup and bought FC Andorra in December 2018.

Pique reckons he is so busy that he only gets a few hours sleep a night but apparently that’s not a problem for his club.

“I barely get four of five hours of sleep. There’s not enough time for everything,” he said.

”The club understand and there are no problems. I dedicate my spare time to what I like.”

The defender admitted back in September that he’d flown out to Orlando for tennis business during pre-season despite Valverde telling him: “Forget about it. It’s too far of a journey.”

Valverde was then asked about Pique’s extra-curricular activities recently in a press conference but said he didn’t have a problem with his involvement in the tennis scene.
