Barca Legend Reveals His Choice For World's Best Defender

FC Barcelona legend Carlos Puyol, who won countless trophies during his playing days, has revealed who he thinks is the best defender in the world.
 
 
Puyol is considered one of the  greatest defenders to have played for the Catalan giants and Spain, having helped both sides to major silverware.
 
However, the 39-year-old claims that his former teammate Gerard Pique is the best defender in world football.
 
"Right now, Pique is the best centre-back in the world," Puyol told La Vanguardia.
 
"He's the perfect age and physically he is in great shape. He's always been very intelligent, but you notice it more now.
 
"The same with his leadership, which he's always had but now he's in complete control on the pitch, especially at the back. That's a plus.
 
"His positioning has improved as well. He hardly ever loses his position and he knows how to read the game and to anticipate what's going to happen. He never loses his head. He seems more responsible, too, something which comes with time and age."
