Is Shakira A Modern Day Yoko Ono?
There are multiple scenarions in which a play could get the literal boot from his club, but dating a celebrity is not a reason we’ve previously heard of.
According to a new report, Shakira is posing a serious threat to her boyfriend’s professional career at Barcelona, with coach Pep Guardiola supposedly threatening to walk away from a new deal with the club unless the 25-year-old defender goes first. One of the primary reasons for such an about face, it seems, is that Pep feels Shakira is too big of a distraction for one of his star players.
Allegedly, Guardiola isn’t exactly thrilled with the influence of the Latin pop star on his player’s game, deeming Shakira “too big of a distraction” for Piqué. The press accusing Shakira of being the club’s own Yoko Ono doesn’t help either.
On the other hand, a few outlets paint a problematic relationship between player and manager dating back to last summer when Pique and his girlfriend went on white water rafting and jet skiing holidays – activities banned by Barcelona to prevent any injuries to their squad members.
“In the pictures, he was white-water rafting; an activity not allowed by the team,” NESN reports. “He had been late to training as recently as October and has consistently broken team rules.”
Apparently this story also serves to explain why Pique didn’t play in Germany: if he could allow himself to be so distracted in public, what would he be capable of on the pitch. This particular theory does not factor in the impromptu trip the couple took to the Amalfi coast on 15th of March or the purported sex tape made by the pair, however.
So Kickettes, we know you’re gonna have a lot to say on the matter, but let it be known we think several of these stories are a hefty load of BS. Concur, disagree, or supply us with your supporting story links and fun images of Gerard’s abdominals in the comments.
