top quotes by Sergio Busquets

about football and his own playing style.

On football

In the world of football only the results are important.

In society and in football in Spain, achievements are not always appreciated or valued.

People who don't like football don't appreciate my game, but I like it.

There are a lot of great midfielders in the world, with each having their own unique style.

You can't obviously predict the future, but I am a fan of the United States and soccer over there continues to grow.

I genuinely enjoy watching the full-back run up the pitch and going across to fill in.

When you're young it's boring to be a keeper.

Stadiums are full, pitches are good, the press is different, people are different, the football culture is different. Everyone talks highly of Spain and I'd like to experience it one day. You see more space, more opportunity to enjoy your football. It's more physical, more intense, but I think I'd be comfortable.

Players can't really control where they go, can't control what a coach thinks of them or if a club wants to sell them.

When a team plays you by pressing so high, if you do not take advantage, they grow in their field, with their atmosphere and the goals they are making.

In the Champions League, there are no weak teams.

All away games in the Champions League are difficult.

This is football, no more explanation, sometimes the best team does not win.

It has more repercussion when the referee favours us than when we are harmed.

All players want to play and this is a source of pride and satisfaction.

A result doesn't determine the planning on the sporting side.

You don't lose because of one play.

Derbies are always well fought and with lots of fouls and interruptions.

When you lose there are things that you don't do well.

In a final, it's winning that counts, it's not the style of play that people remember.

It's always like that with Italian teams, they're competitive, they know what they want and they know how to get it.

On his Playing style

I am a team player who tries to work for the team.

The work is intense. You have to calculate a great deal very quickly which requires football intelligence and real concentration. Part of my role is to shuttle between the defense and the attacking lines to make sure that the ball circulates well and quickly.

You need to know exactly where to be on the pitch at all times.

Without my team-mates I could not do anything.

I would be a dream to score against Madrid, that would be an unforgettable goal.

I love my role, I love the job I do.

If you want to play showy football and be noticed then mine isn't the position to pick.

On a tactical level the defensive midfielder in a 4-3-3 formation is just about the most demanding position there is.

I don't score many goals or do much dribbling, but I still feel very much an important part of the team.

More than stopping the counter-attack when it happens you want to prevent it from starting.

I'm a team player who needs to work a lot and sacrifice myself for the success of the group.

If there's a problem, I prefer to have to swallow that myself than force a team-mate to do so. I think about them because in my position that is what your job consists of.

I play the way I am as a person. I don't panic, I'm patient.

My team-mates appreciate that I do the dirty work and I know it is necessary.

I can be the only defensive midfielder and try and break up play. Or I can play a little more forward.

Bit by bit my work is being recognised. I am very happy at that.

If I lose the ball I cause the team a problem. I am here to provide solutions.

As kids we'd be forever shooting at dad and I started as a striker, but I eventually became a pivote, the position I like most and best suits my characteristics.

Whatever the coach wants. I'll be his man.

For me it's best to play midfield but if the team needs it, I can play anywhere.

Sergio Busquets quotes on Messi and Ronaldo

In every generation, young football fans argue endlessly about who is the best player of the history of football. In this generation the debate is mostly between

Lionel Messi

and Cristiano Ronaldo fans. Busquets has praised both Messi and Ronaldo many times. He played alongside Messi at Barcelona and has always backed-up the Argentine in the never-ending topic of who is the Goat in the history of football. The followings are the best

Sergio Busquets quotes about Messi and Ronaldo


An Ibra-Messi tandem would have been marvellous, but history decided otherwise.

Messi is really unpredictable. He's head-and-shoulders above everyone. Undeniably.

We already know what Leo is capable of and it's a pleasure to see him on a daily basis. The level of effectiveness he has in training and matches is tremendous. He is fundamental in free-kicks, in open play, that's why he's the best player in the world.

With Messi in the side, we have the chance to win every title.

Modric is spectacular, but Messi has no comparison with Luka or anyone.

For us, Messi is the best.

We all know what a great player Cristiano is.

Messi is a star in every sense. He is not as timid as he seems.

Having Messi in the team guarantees everything. He doesn’t just score, he gives assists, and he works and wins the ball. He is the best player in the world.

Still trying to get used to everything and knowing how hard it will be, I can only thank you for what you’ve done for the club and for those we’ve accompanied you over these years, and specifically towards me.

You came as a child and you're going to be the best player in history, having made this club grow to the height it deserves and making history, individually and collectively. I can always say I played and shared many moments with you, most very good and I was lucky enough to grow up and enjoy by your side for 13 seasons. (Busquets farewell message to Messi after the Argentine left Barcelona)

Top quotes by Sergio Busquets about famous football players

In this part of our article on we will have a look at the

top quotes by Sergio Busquets

about other football great stars and teams, including his comments on his former teammates, Xavi, Iniesta and Puyol.

On Xavi and Andres Iniesta:

Truth to be told, yes, it does feel very strange to be in the Spain setup without Xavi. Ever since I broke through for Barca and Spain he's always been around. We've always had a great relationship and he's always set an example in every way, when it comes to camaraderie, how much help he's given me and, above all, in footballing terms.

It's great playing alongside Xavi and


because you know that you're always going to get the ball cleanly from them.

To reach the appearance total of Xavi is impossible, I'm not thinking about that.

On Luis Enrique:

The impact of Luis Enrique has been very positive. He has very clear ideas about football and we've absorbed them.

I admire Luis Enrique's desire to work and improve.

On Zlatan Ibrahimovic:

In personal terms, Ibra is a great guy. He's a serious guy, who makes fun of you when you least expect it.

On Pep Guardiola:

It's clear that I owe

Pep Guardiola

a lot and I would be honoured to work with him again. Although he knows that this is my club and that it is the best for me, so I don't think he is going to ask me,

On Luis Figo:

Figo was my hero. Then he joined Madrid. Barca fans hated him for that. It was impossible for him to be a hero any more, but now that I'm a professional, I see things differently.

On Neymar:

Neymar has the capability to be a leader in the absence of Leo. He's one of those players who can make the team feel better.

There's only one Neymar.

On Carles Puyol:

It's an honour to be able to wear the No.5 jersey and that Carles Puyol thought of me to inherit it.

Best Sergio Busquets quotes about his club and international career

I have always said I won't be better off anywhere else. Me and the club are made for each other. I can enjoy being at home, at the best club in the world, with the best players, fighting for titles every year

It's special when you win the World Cup, the league, everything.

I was still in the U19s and it was a surprise to be called up. But I was really happy. I'd trained with the B team, once or twice with the first team, and I was excited to make my debut, even though it wasn't official, and to play a little in the Copa Catalunya. (On his debut at Barcelona)

It's very difficult to reach World Cup and Champions League finals and I want to experience those things again.

Every manager is different in one way or another, but what stays the same is coaching Barcelona players - players who want the ball, who want to be protagonists on the field - so each manager who's been here has been able to take advantage of that, and, luckily, I feel we've become more complete because of it.

It's Champions League nights when our fans roar us on even more, lose their voices, and we really notice it. That's what the Champions League means to me.

For me, a Catalan, who plays for Barca, for me to play in Madrid - that would be very difficult.

It sounds elementary, but I've seen some really talented kids leave Barca because they wouldn't listen or thought they had become a professional before they did. If you are not good in a group then you don't have a place at Barca.

It's tough to go out like this and I apologise to Barcelona fans. I think we had chances to score the goal we needed, but it wasn't meant to be today. (After the 4-0 loss to Liverpool)

That was the best performance of Pep’s era, where our success, our superiority, was most overwhelming – a demonstration of how we wanted to play. (On the 3-1 win against Man United in the 2011 UCL final)

We know the Premier League is a spectacular league. We would like to play there, but if you take all the positives and all the negatives, it's very difficult to leave Barcelona. If you feel at home and you're from Barcelona it's difficult to change.

I think the best era was with Pep. But football’s not the same, it’s evolved, so you can’t compare what we do now with what we did then, or what we do in the future. Before it was a very clear 4-3-3; now it’s 4-3-3 but sometimes 4-4-2. I like the 4-3-3 we had before more but, with our players, we can play any system. And ultimately the philosophy is the same.

I've always said that I won't be a Barcelona player for 20 years with a secondary role. The moment that I feel my ambition is fading or that I am not able to deliver physically, I will step aside and leave feeling privileged and content of what I gave to the club.

Best quotes on Sergio Busquets from other football stars:

We wrap up our article on Sergio Busquets quotes with a look at the best quotes about Sergio Busquets from other football's great stars.


Without Busquets, Barcelona and Spain could never had achieved what we have achieved.

Cesar Luis Menotti:

He’s one of the greatest talents that has been given to Spanish football. This is a discovery. The first time I saw Busquets playing, I called a friend and said: ‘I saw a player from an extinct species’. He’s a star. An absolute talent. 

Sergio Ramos:

There are a number of players I like, but the one we perhaps need is Busquets.

Positionally, he seems like a veteran with or without the ball. With the ball he makes what is difficult look easy: he disposes of the ball with one or two touches. Without the ball, he gives us a lesson: that of being in the right place to intercept and running just to recover the ball.

Pep Guardiola:

Busquets is the best defensive central midfielder in the world. He’s tactically very strong and will only become more important for Barcelona in the future. He can follow in the footsteps of Carles Puyol and Xavi. He’s very humble and calm, but doesn’t mind speaking up when he sees fit either. If I was reincarnated as a player, I’d like to be like him

Vicente del Bosque:

Busquets makes everything look so easy that we sometimes don’t realize how hard he works. You watch the game, you don’t see Busquets. You watch Busquets, you see the whole game
