The president and the defender will meet up after the latter's recent comments

FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and Gerard Pique, one of the team's captains, will meet in the coming days to clear the air after the latter's recent comments.

Pique has questioned the board twice in the last week. He said he did not like the team's pre-season tours of Japan and the US, claiming "we did more travelling and less training and we're feeling it."

Then he hinted that the board were planting stories in the media against the players.

Lionel Messi, in his exclusive interview with SPORT, also said he wasn't sure the board did all they could to bring Neymar back to the club.

The objective of the meeting will be to smooth things over and stop Pique's digs which in Madrid they are using to do more damage to Barcelona.
