Pique: 'Araujo can become Barcelona top defender for the next 10-15 years'

Pique praises Araujo's physical prowess and his ball-handling ability and says the first team have Barca B to thank for the Uruguayan's brilliance.

"Ronald Araujo is a great centre-back. He has it all to become a top defender for the next 10 to 15 years. He is very young and has a great mentality. Physically, he is a wonder as he's fast and strong. He also plays well with the ball at his feet," Gerard Pique said during an interview, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

"You could say that we were lucky to have him, but La Masia has served Barcelona very well. During his time in the third tier with Barcelona B, he matured, and now is taking advantage of the opportunity at the first team. We have to help him so that he turns into the best possible version of himself."

With Pique's long-term injury, Araujo became an undisputed starter at Barcelona and has impressed both the fans and the coaching staff. The 21-year-old has made 19 appearances for Barcelona this term, scoring one goal.
