Sergio Busquets believes his career took off when he came across Pep Guardiola, who he describes as a ‘footballing master’.
“The turning point of my career was when I crossed paths with Guardiola. When you are with him, you are in the company of a footballing master,” the Barcelona midfielder told BeIN Sports’ Universo Valdano programme.
With Andres Iniesta due to call time on his illustrious career with the Catalans this weekend, Busquets is one of the only remaining members of the team that played under the current Manchester City boss.
Nonetheless, despite all honours picked up during that time, the 29-year-old confessed he would like to have won more individual honours, having often been ignored in that regard.
“I prefer team titles to individual titles, although there have been some years when I honestly think I earned them.
“When we won the Champions League, when we won the World Cup, the European Championships, I think I played a fundamental part,” he explained.
