Man City defender Garcia: Joining Barcelona courageous; Pique joined wrong Manchester club!

Manchester City defender Eric Garcia has explained his decision to return to Barcelona.

Garcia will join Barca as he comes off contract next month.

He told L'Esportiu: “I thought about my future, what I think is the best now. I think it is a courageous decision. I am very convinced of the step that I have taken.

"The comparison with (Gerard) Piqué? I don't think so, I don't care because I think we're different footballers, right? Gérard has achieved everything, he is one of the best central defenders in the world, he is more recognised than when I am 20 years old and I am starting my career, practically. So the only possible comparison is that we are both from La Masia and we live in Manchester, but he is not on the right team (Manchester United).

"I was luckier and was able to play for the best team in Manchester. Too bad for him."
