Busquets: I could talk for five or six hours about Barcelona drama

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets says he could talk for “five or six hours” about the turbulence at the club. LaLiga giants Barca have been engulfed in drama for much of 2020, following Lionel Messi’s public declaration that he wanted to leave the club, Luis Suarez’s contentious departure to Atletico Madrid and the appointment of Ronald Koeman as new head coach following Quique Setien’s dismissal in the wake of an 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich. Messi ultimately remained at Camp Nou after it became clear he would be unable to exercise a get-out clause in his contract, while Koeman refuted Suarez’s claim that he was forced out of the club rival Triller reportedly in talks to go public Busquets – currently on international duty with Spain – holds strong views on the state of his club but suggested it would take a significant amount of time to discuss them all. “One thing is what happens outside, which is not the best moment of the club,” he told a media conference ahead of Spain’s Nations League clash with Ukraine. “And another what happens in the field, which was not our best year and it shows at an individual and collective level. “If I stopped to give my opinion carefully, it could be five or six hours. “On the field it was not our best year. Football is a team sport and if you are not well collectively, you will not be individually. But it has already happened and we have a new opportunity. Things have changed and we hope it will get better.” Busquets started Spain’s 0-0 friendly draw with Portugal on Wednesday and their 1-0 Nations League win over Switzerland three days later to take him to 119 caps since his debut in 2008.
