Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova reveals that he warned Gerard Pique before the defender was sent off in their 3-2 defeat to Real Sociedad.

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has admitted that he told Gerard Pique to "be careful" before the defender was given a red card in their 3-2 defeat to Real Sociedad on Saturday.

The centre-back was dismissed in the second half for two bookable offences and Vilanova revealed that he had warned the Spain international at the interval.

"At half time, I told Pique to be careful as his next foul would most likely result in a second caution," Vilanova told reporters after the game.

"Even if his sending-off was for a clear foul, there must have been 200 other cases similar to his tonight. I don't have to add more."

The defeat ended a 19-game unbeaten run for Barca.
