Pique is better than me, Puyol

Pique is ahead other defenders – Puyol

Carles Puyol has tipped his former teammate as the best defender in the world, and according to former Blaugrana defender, ‘Pique is a better defender than him.’

Puyol, who captained Barcelona from 2003/04 season up until 2014, when he hung his boots said he would picked Pique over Ramos, as he believes his former partner at the heart of Barcelona’s defence is the best centre back presently.

When the 40 years was asked in an interview with Marca if Pique is better than he was, he responded: Yes, he’s the best central defender in the world.

“We’re different. He is key to Barcelona in everything he contributes, in his leadership. He’s a phenomenon and a great friend.”

Earlier this month, a former Barcelona midfielder and Sporting Director Robert Fernandez also said that Pique was the greatest centre back ever.

Meanwhile, Puyol, a 100 capped Spain international, who wouldn’t want to meddle much in the affair of arch-rivals Real Madrid, who recently brought back Zidane to the club.

 The 2010 World Cup winner casted doubt over the Frenchman replicating as much achievement like he did during his first tenure at the club, when he won three Champions Leagues on the bounce.

He said further, “He {Zidane} has had eight months to think, reflect and decide what he wanted to do.

“The team hasn’t succeeded without him and they’ve accepted that, but the questions is whether Zidane can do even better than last time.”
