Busquets contradicts Laporta

Busquets contradicts Laporta

“The great merit of this Selection could be attributed to Xavi because he is making them play in the Barça first team”. This was the pearl that Joan Laporta, Barca president, left in a solidarity golf tournament on Monday. Hours later, in The Stringer of the Ser Chain, his footballer Sergio Busquets contradicted him from the Doha concentration: “The president’s vein for Barcelona came out. Xavi has the merit of giving Balde more of a leading role, of signing Ferrán… But all the rest of us were already in the National Team before Xavi came to the bench. Although we Barça players are important, the merit belongs to the National Team, especially the coach, and the teammates who help us here”

The captain of Barça and La Roja touched on other interesting topics, such as his uncertain future. In recent days he has taken his departure to Inter Miami for granted: “I haven’t decided where I’m going to play next year. I have already said it several times. I know it’s my last year of contract, a lot has happened. I have nothing signed, about February I would like to be clear and decide. The Miami thing has been said since the franchise was made. I like the United States, especially Miami, it’s an attractive league. But I haven’t negotiated anything yet, the first one who would know is my club.”

Busquets spoke very fondly of Luis Enrique and of the desire that the coach has for the Barca midfielder to play in another World Cup. For this, and it was not cut, it would count a lot if the Asturian also continues with the Red: “I have not decided that it will be my last World Cup, but it looks more like yes. If Luis Enrique is coach, maybe I’ll think about it. It is a privilege to have Luis Enrique, but the decision to continue with Spain depends on him. What he has done has a lot of merit, but I don’t know if he wants to be more day-to-day. The performance and putting Spain back among the favorites has been achieved by him and if he does not continue, hopefully he will go through with another coach. People have become hooked on the National Team, we had lost it and we recovered it ”.

The withdrawal of his friend Piqué was another of the issues that Sergio faced: “I knew what he thought for a long time. Geri is a Barça legend, she has given everything for the club and her teammates. Hopefully there will be many Piqués in the future because that way Barcelona will do very well”.
