Veteran Blaugrana midfielder Sergio Busquets has been an unsung hero for Barcelona since time immemorial. While the Cules have hailed the likes of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi as their all-time greats, Busi has quietly gone about his business of thwarting rival counterattacks and feeding balls to the forwards.
A video posted on the official handle of the Spanish National Team corroborates his expertise on the ball, as the DM is seen practising in a rondo with flair ahead of the upcoming encounters.
The training visuals bring out every aspect of the Spaniard to perfection. He displays supreme ball control, deft 2-touch passing and adroit field positioning. The 33-year-old showcases his knack of being aware of his teammates’ positioning, and his know-how in dropping in between adversaries in winning the ball back.
Of late his form with La Roja has been extraordinary. At the Euros last year, Busquets bagged two back-to-back Man of the Match awards for his stunning on-field performances against Slovakia and Croatia.
His skilful pitch scanning and effectiveness of movement left the fans gasping in awe who bestowed upon him the deserved accolade of “maestro” on Twitter.
Spain takes on Greece for the first of their World Cup Qualifier games, and Luis Enrique would expect nothing short of brilliance from skipper Sergio.
