Gerard Pique spent four at Manchester United before joining Barcelona and Rio Ferdinand explains why the Spaniard struggled in England.
Pique joined the Red Devils at the age of 17 in 2004, but struggled to stake a claim in the squad during his four-your stint, having competed against the likes of Nemanja Vidic, Johnny Evans and Ferdinand.
The Spanish defender eventually left United to join Pep Guardiola's Barcelona, and has since gone on to win numerous titles.
However, Ferdinand doesn't believe Pique would have succeeded England if he had stayed.
"I think that Pique's talent was never in doubt," Ferdinand told Squawka.
"He was playing Champions League games before he left so it wasn’t like the manager didn’t trust him.
"He just had myself and Vidic in front of him and he wasn’t moving us. Simple as that.
"The thing with Pique is would he have ever made it England? I think that’s debatable and you could have calls for saying he wouldn’t and that he would. That (La Liga) style of football suits him perfectly and he adapted straight away."
