“Last year he was one of the best and he played many games with discomfort, forcing his physique to help the team,” the former Barca captain wrote on Instagram.
“If he is at 100% this coming season, there are few central defenders in the world who can give his performance,” he added.
Just when Barca has closed an agreement with Jules Kounde, which will increase the quality and competence in the defense axis, Carles Puyol has broken a spear in favor of Gerard Pique, who will have to fight for a place in the Barca starting eleven with the aforementioned French defender, Ronald Araujo, Eric Garcia, and Andreas Christensen. ‘Puyi‘, who shared a dressing room for six years with ‘Piquenbauer‘, highlighted the commitment shown by the Barcelonan, making it clear that he can still be one of the best in the world. “I have been lucky enough to share a dressing room with many players and Gerard is, without a doubt, one of the most competitive.
Last year, in my opinion, @3gerardpique was one of the best and played a lot of games with discomfort, forcing his physique to help the team. If in this next season he is 100%, there are few central defenders in the world who can give his performance.
The team is getting stronger and this competition will make everyone have to give their best version. Something very positive for the team.
Visca el Barca!” Puyol wrote on Instagram along with a photo of him with Pique from the 2001-12 season.
