The defender was stopped in his tracks by the police in Barcelona and any further delay in the police custody could hamper his preparation for the title defence on Sunday as they face Eibar.

The defender was allegedly fined for excess speed and reckless driving, which is likely to result in six points on his driving license.

Pique didn’t look too impressed behind the wheel as he also recovers from an abdominal complaint, which kept him out of Sunday’s 4-1 victory at Las Palmas.

Luis Enrique’s team still have one La Liga game left to rescue their title bid but remain three points behind bitter rivals Real Madrid in the standings.

The 30-year-old defender has been a subject of discussion over the season he was recently booed in Madrid when he went to watch a lawn tennis game and also his social media outburst against Barcelona rivals Real Madrid.

Pique and his team-mates can still finish the season with silverware, as they take on Alaves in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday, May 27.
