Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said superstar team-mate Lionel Messi is the "biggest troll" he knows.

Argentina and Barca's all-time leading goalscorer to go with his five Ballons d'Or and other honours, Messi is perceived to be a shy character. However, Pique – who is often outspoken – made a revelation about the Barcelona captain.

"Messi has very ironic humour, he's one of the biggest trolls [I know]," Pique said on Movistar+ show 'La Resistencia'.

Messi has enjoyed another fine season for La Liga champion Barca as it prepare to return to action following the international break.

The 31-year-old has scored 39 goals in all competitions this season, including a league-high 29 ahead of Saturday's derby against Espanyol.
