New addition to the Spain squad, Jonathan Viera insists Gérard Pique remains very committed to the squad.
The Barcelona defender was booed during an open training session by the La Roja due to his support for Catalonia independence.
However, Las Palmas striker, Viera believes Pique, who has represented the country 91 times deserves respect.
“Everybody has their thoughts and freedom of opinion. If he thinks that way, we just have to respect it,” the Las Palmas attacker said.
“If he’s here with us it’s because he is committed to the national team.
“He’s been coming for years and doing things right so we shouldn’t cast doubt on him.”
