The defender has gone on to win La Liga six times, the Champions League three times and the World Cup with Spain since leaving Old Trafford.

But he admits the one thing he misses about United is the dressing-room humour.

“I’m a big fan of British humour, it was what I loved about Manchester,” he told Spanish TV station TV3.

“They don’t get offended when you play tricks on them. They try to get you back, but they don’t complain.

“Here at Barca, my humour hasn’t always been appreciated by everyone. I deflate team-mates’ tires and other things, but this is nothing compared to what happened at United.

“He went into the shower and we created a small bonfire and burned them. We recorded it and then sent him the video.

“In the first few years here [at Barca] I tried similar things but it didn’t work. It’s not the same culture.

“It was a dressing room full of life.”
