Pique joined talkSPORT Drive on Wednesday and named the ex-Manchester United defender as the player he admired the most at Old Trafford.

The Spain icon also put Ferdinand above Chelsea legend John Terry as the greatest centre-back in Premier League history.

But for Ferdinand, it wasn’t just his former teammate’s praise for him that he enjoyed, but what former foe Carragher will make of it.

Carragher has previously ranked Ferdinand below Terry and branded the Man United hero a ‘poor man’s Virgil van Dijk’.

Re-posting Pique’s compliment on his Instagram story, Ferdinand tagged the Liverpool legend.

“@23_carra will be fuming,” Ferdinand joked, with four laughing emojis.

“‘Ahhh it’s ya mate… blah blah blah’.”

Ferdinand and Pique played together in Sir Alex Ferguson‘s Man United team from 2004 to 2008.

The pair won numerous accolades together, including the Champions League in 2008, although Pique only played 12 Premier League games.

Meanwhile, feuding pundits Carragher and Ferdinand have been involved in a number of heated debates in recent months.

The pair had another social media ding-dong after Manchester United secured a dramatic last-minute winner in the FA Cup quarter-finals to knock Liverpool out with a 4-3 victory.

After Ferdinand posted on social media celebrating the trip to Wembley, Carragher said: “Relax [crying laughter emojis].

Manchester City will beat you comfortably in the final & ETH [Erik ten Hag] will still be in charge next season.

“It’s not the win you think it is!!”
