Sergio Busquets: Barcelona star shows off his quality during Spain training drill

Sergio Busquets - what a footballer!

Sergio Busquets is without question one of the greatest defensive midfielders to have played the game.

For well over a decade with both Barcelona and the Spanish national team, the lanky maestro has been a world-class performer and he's still going strong at the age of 33.

Busquets was one of La Roja's best players at Euro 2020, expertly captaining the team to a semi-final appearance - where they were defeated by eventual winners Italy.

The veteran midfielder is arguably the most important player in Luis Enrique's current setup, the man who knits the entire team together.

And the way he's able to do that is through supreme footballing intelligence and the Spanish national side were eager to highlight that fact through their official Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon.

La Roja's social media team posted a fascinating video of Busquets showcasing his ability to beat the press with ease during a training drill.

Despite having multiple players surrounding him and attempting to pinch the ball throughout the exercise, the Barcelona man never lost his composure and was always able to find a teammate with a quick pass.

If a mere mortal attempted to replicate Busquets' composure and quality on the ball, they would almost certainly end up tripping over their own feet after a matter of seconds.

The Spain captain will need to be at his brilliant best over the November international break to help La Roja automatically qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
