Sergio Busquets spoke about his future with Spain NT and Barcelona, Luis Enrique, the World Cup, Pedri, Gavi, and a comparison of the performance of Barcelona players under Enrique and Xavi.

Busquets on Luis Enrique:

“The leader of the national team is Luis Enrique. Managers have to be the leaders. I hope he stays with the national team for several years. Enrique has developed this team based on his philosophy and has done a good job. If he doesn’t continue, I’m assuming another manager will set his style.”

Busquets on his continuity with Spanish NT:

“Would the chances grow if Luis Enrique stays? Well, yeah, I would think about it. I haven’t decided yet, but it seems like it will be my last World Cup. I feel good and important, but it’s closer to being my last one even if I haven’t decided.”

Busquets on lifting the World Cup:

“I have thought about it and dreamt about doing it. I am the only one here that has a World Cup and it would be beautiful to have two.”

“I’m a few years older than when I was in South Africa, but equally happy of being in a World Cup. I try to take care of myself and weigh less.”

Busquets on his plans for the next season:

“I don’t know where I’m gonna play next season. I’d like to know for sure in February. I haven’t signed anything with anyone.”

Busquets on Pedri and Gavi:

“From the beginning, Gavi and Pedri amazed me but I don’t like comparing them with Xavi and Iniesta.

Busquets on the environment in Qatar:

“There is a good ambient from everybody, not just the players, which is spectacular. We faced difficulties during the Euro and that strengthened the team. The Manager makes us feel validated.”

“Here in Qatar, we have a very amiable environment and the installations are very good.” “Aside from the day before a game or the matchday, we do try to watch more games.”

Busquets on Barca players performing better with Spain NT:

“Maybe a little bit, but I don’t think there is much difference. They are two different teams, different managers, ambient, and philosophies that are different.”
