Sergio Busquets (Sabadell, 16 July 1988), from the third division to winning the sextuple in a single season showed from the very first day that he had what it took to be part of the greatest Barça team ever
Sergio Busquets's name goes down in gold letters in club history. He was a basic part of the greatest Barça team ever after growing up at La Masia, and going on to become one of the finest defensive midfielders ever to grace the game.
Born in Badia del Vallès, he first wore number 16 before making the number 5 shirt his own, and was made first team captain in 2021/22.
His father, Carlos Busquets, played in goal for Barça from 1990 to 1998, while Busquets junior entered the club's youth system in 2005.
‘Busi’ made the third highest number of appearances in club history, 722, scoring 18 goals. His 15 seasons began in 2008/09, when Pep Guardiola sent him on during a 1-1 draw with Racing Santander. He earned a regular place that every season and was in the team that won the Champions League in Rome.
In total, he won 32 major trophies, the third highest tally for any blaugrana player. In his final season, he won a ninth Liga title and became the player with the most Clásico appearances ever, 48.
