Former Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure decided to throw some minor shade at Gerard Pique when talking about Rafa Marquez this week. In an interview with Sky Sports, Toure discussed Marquez and, as apart of his discussion, implied how much better the Mexican was than Pique.

“He’s one of the toughest defenders I know,” he said.

”But having not played in England, people don’t remember him.

”Go on YouTube and watch him play, he was ten times better than Pique.

”They can be similar, but I’m telling you he was ten times better, I fell in love with how good he was.”

Getting some good Toure quotes out of nowhere is fun. Given his current situation of not having a team to play for, perhaps making some waves in the media is just what Toure needs since his athleticism seem to be gone.
