Clement Lenglet has been talking about his partnership with Gerard Pique in the heart of the Barcelona defence and just how his fellow centre-back helps him out.

The Frenchman has become a regular alongside Pique in his first season at Barcelona and has been full of praise for his team-mate,

“He is very intelligent. Geri helps me a lot. He makes everything easier for you. He helps me to interpret the game and does not need to say it with words.

“Just looking at him is enough. We do not talk much. But you look at Gerard’s position, you look at his attitude, you look at his game and that’s enough for you. He is a very composed person and never transmits the feeling of nerves to anyone.

Lenglet seems to have moved ahead of Samuel Umtiti in the pecking order at Barcelona, but he’ll face a fight to keep hold of his place in the team now the World Cup winner is back to fitness.
