Pique: Barcelona squad very similar to Man Utd

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says player-for-player they are similar to Manchester United.

Both clubs are among the favourites for this season's Champions League.

Pique said: "In particular, the players are the same. In Manchester, I learned a lot from people like [Ryan] Giggs, [Gary] Neville and [Paul] Scholes, and in Barcelona this role is performed by players like Xavi and [Carlos] Puyol, who are the example for those who arrive to the team."
