Sergio Busquets is a special player and yet strangely there’s still the overriding feeling that he remains underrated. But this new compilation should remind fans just how good the Barcelona midfielder is.
Created by ‘AS Comps – Match Compilations’, it’s basically just 11 minutes of Busquets making football look easy.
“You watch the game, you don’t see Busquets. You watch Busquets, you see the whole game.”
The Spaniard has raised the bar for the role of a defensive midfielder with his performances over the years. Typically a player in the deep midfield position would be a water-carrier/ball winner – and while Busquets does that very well – his game is unbelievably complete.
Oozing class and composure, we see Busquets’ innate awareness and decision-making to break up play, as well as setting the tempo in the middle of the park with his crisp passing.
In addition, there’s also a whole host of footage whereby Busquets links up superbly with Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi, finding him in pockets with defence-splitting passes and allowing the five-time Ballon d’Or to weave his magic.
We’re not exaggerating when we say there aren’t any many defensive midfielders who have that in their locker, but then again there aren’t any other players in that role who have the same jaw-dropping skill-set as Busquets.
