Gerard Pique has compared Nigerian international, John Ogu, to his former teammate and African footballer, Yaya Toure.
The Barcelona star made this revelation during a video call with the former Hapoel Beer Sheva of Israel player on social media.
Ogu, 29, had called the Spanish World Cup winner to congratulate him on playing 500 games for Barcelona in their 5-2 win over Real Betis on Sunday.
Both footballers appear to be good friends on social media despite never playing for the same team or against each other before.
“You are a great guy and a monster. You remind me of Yaya Toure,” Pique said during the chat as they lavished compliments on each other.
Ogu, who had previously played in Slovenia and Portugal, is currently a free agent after leaving the Israeli club, Hapoel Beer Sheva, at the end of last season.
