Puyol

Carles Puyol has not forgotten Gerard Piqué, his former mate in the defense line, and said that the current Barça player is the best in the world right now in his position. The former player was interviewed by ESPN before playing a match in Mexico with former mates like Ronaldinho or Eto'o.

The best center-back

"Gerard Piqué. He is a leader, very good in terms of defense and also in attack."

The best season

"I've lived many but 2008/09 was very special. It's the only team that have been able to win 6 titles in a single year..."

World cup or Champions League?

"It's hard to say... the World Cup is always special, but I'm a real Barça fan and my dream was to win Champions League with Barcelona. Luckily, I have won both titles and I don't have to choose."

La Masia

"It's really important for Barça to be able to count on players trained in La Masia. In my time we managed to be 11 La Masia footballers playing in La Masia at the same time and this is really special."

Future plans

"I don't want to come back to Barcelona right now. I'm working with Ivan de la Peña and Ramon Sostres advising young players as well as professional ones. I'm excited about this project."
