Video Shows Why There's No Point Even Trying To Press Sergio Busquets

A video asking whether "there is any point" pressing Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has picked up millions of views on YouTube.

The 32-year-old continues to be a huge influence for both club and country in the middle of the park and for many, remains one of the best - and most underrated - players in world football.

Former Spain manager Vincente del Bosque, who spent eight years managing him with the national team, once said, "You watch the game, you don't see Busquets. You watch Busquets, you see the whole game."

It's a perfect analogy for the defensive midfielder. He doesn't always get you goals or assists but he is such an important cog in a team. He makes everything tick and sees things seconds before anybody else on the pitch.

Steven Gerrard once said Busquets was an "absolute nightmare" to play against because you couldn't get near him, while Rio Ferdinand claimed he could play in a pair of velvet slippers and perform.

Everything is so easy for the Spaniard and this YouTube video, which has been viewed over three millions times, proves why it's so hard to press him in midfield areas.

Just take a look at the below clip. "When it comes to his dribbling, he's basically a 6 foot Messi who can't run but somehow he has the ability to slow down time." said one user - another great analogy.

Is there any point pressing Sergio Busquets?

As well as consistently snuffing out counter attacks while the likes of Lionel Messi take all the glory in the final third, Busquets makes Leo's job easier by being that man who holds the team together. It's the Barca way and he knows it.

"I play in a position that demands hard work and generosity and little glamour, but I like it." Busquets once said.

"It's my job and I like it. I would rather intercept and steal 10 balls than shoot. That's what I'm here for, to make everyone's jobs easier."

He certainly makes everyone's job a lot easier. One of the most underrated players in world football, without doubt.

Let us know your thoughts on Busquets in the comments.
