The Argentine defender, who earned ten titles in his time at the club, believes Luis Enrique’s side are at the same level as the one he played in

Former FC Barcelona defender Gabriel Milito visited the club’s training facilities on Friday to visit some of his old colleagues.

The Argentine also had a bit of time to speak to Barca TV about the in-form side as well as his happy times at the Camp Nou where he played 76 matches and won ten titles. Here is a pick of what the no-nonsense defender had to say:

Special front three

“Barça has always had spectacular strike-forces but the current one is impressive: they score goals, break records, and are very determined.”

Extraordinary team

“It is admirable what this Barça side is doing. The team is playing extraordinarily and winning everything.”

Replicating Pep’s team

“After the Guardiola era, many asked us when we would see another team of that level. It hasn’t been too long since then and it is already being replicated.”

Unforgettable years at Barça

“They were four unforgettable years. To come back to see my old teammates and step foot on the Ciutat Esportiva (field) is very emotional.”
