Style of play
Busquets is usually deployed as either a central or defensive midfielder, although he is also capable of playing as a central defender. A hard-working player, he excels at breaking down opposition plays due to his positional sense, defensive attributes, tactical intelligence and ability to read the game. Due to his vision, ball control, physical prowess, technical skills and accurate passing ability, he rarely relinquishes possession, and alongside both his current and former midfield teammates, such as Iniesta, Xavi and Ivan Rakitić, he has also played an important creative role in setting his team’s tempo in midfield as a deep-lying playmaker through his passing game.
Manager del Bosque praised Busquets, saying, “If you watch the whole game, you won’t see Busquets—but watch Busquets, and you will see the whole game.” The latter’s height also allowed him to be effective in the air, and enabled him to advance into more offensive positions on occasion, providing an additional attacking outlet for his team.
Busquets was largely accused of diving by the media on a number of occasions, due to opposition players being wrongly booked or even sent-off during the game because of his excessive play-acting and protests. However, in response to these criticisms, he defended diving in football as intelligent play.

‘After Sergio Busquets, he is tactically the strongest midfielder in Europe’: Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira receives high praise from his former coach
Updated: 27 July 2018
Lucas Torreira has been branded the second strongest midfielder in Europe by his former coach Marcello Donatelli – behind only Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets.
The 22-year-old joined Arsenal for £26.4million earlier this month with Unai Emery looking to revitalise a squad which has failed to make the Champions League for the last two seasons.
They have been in need of a quality defensive midfielder, with the likes of Granit Xhaka disappointing in Arsene Wenger’s final two seasons.
Torreira spent the last two seasons at Sampdoria, making 71 appearances and scoring four goals and quickly became a fan favourite.
‘His technique, his determination and his tactical intelligence always impressed me,’ Donatelli told Sky Sports.
‘He has always been strong in understanding those defensive tactical aspects and he is very mature tactically in terms of how he reads the game.
‘He can cope with the gaps that emerge in midfield with great intelligence and he covers very well. He is the one who corrects the spaces and cuts out the passes between the lines in the defensive phase.
‘After Sergio Busquets, he is tactically the strongest midfielder in Europe.’
Torreira’s new boss Emery elected to give every player involved at the World Cup three weeks off before joining on their pre-season tour.
The 22-year-old has been enjoying his break in the Caribbean after playing in all five of Uruguay’s games in Russia.
After helping Uruguay to a 2-1 win over European champions Portugal, Torreira and Co exited the tournament in the quarter-finals against eventual winners France.
Now Arsenal’s fourth summer signing, he joins Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi who are also new arrivals at the Emirates.
