Ex-Real Madrid player, Oscar Ruggeri has thrown shades at Gerald Pique, labeling the Barcelona superstar an average defender.
Ruggeri who played for Real Madrid in the 1989/90 season, believes Pique is as average as many other defenders but lucky to play for a big team.#
“Pique is a second-rate [player], like me, like many others,” Ruggeri told FOX
“He’s good looking, he’s with the singer [Shakira]… he has a cool beard, but if he played for Valencia, he wouldn’t be well known. Pique ended up playing for Barcelona.
“He’s like me – bang average. A good defender, but not much else.
“He doesn’t get put under pressure, except against the big teams.” Ruggeri said.
Ruggeri won the world cup with Argentina in 1986, and he believes Real Captain, Sergio Ramos is the best defender in the world.
