Serhio Busketss and Inter Miami CF
Sergio Busquets has arrived in MLS with the big goals of winning titles and helping a new club grow. But he also wants to enjoy his time in Miami. He recently spoke about his decision to come to the United States and his new manager, Gerardo Martino.
It must be said that MLS was at fault for uploading the picture showing Busquets with the World Cup trophy. The error didn’t go unnoticed and prompted plenty of mockery on social media.
In a midfield full of talented and talented players, Busquets stands out as the one constant. He is the one who always soaks up everything thrown at him and quietly gives the team exactly what it needs. Statistics can’t measure his game, and he doesn’t always play the hero, but he is always first among equals.
He is one of the most essential players in Barcelona’s history and will be hard to replace. He was the rock that held everything together for a decade, winning the Fifa Club World Cup and Supercopa de Espaa, as well as two La Liga titles, before departing for South Africa. He was a big reason Barca won the Champions League so often, too, with his calm nature in front of goal.
This season, he has again been one of the most critical players in the team. He tied his personal best in appearances and has been a solid defensive presence and a vital component in the build-up of play. However, he is slowing down a little, and his tackling and ability to track back have suffered.
He also struggles in aerial duels and sometimes loses the ball when defending against physical opponents. In a team with few tall players, it is something that he should work on.
Despite his niggling injuries, Busquets remains one of the most influential players in the team. He is essential in the build-up of play, and his performance against Manchester United was a case in point. He could only complete part of his repertoire of skills, but he managed to control possession and make critical passes that led to goals for his teammates.
He will likely be one of the most used players in Barcelona’s squad this season. He will be a crucial player in the build-up of play and will be needed to protect the back line against pacy opposition. However, he will have to battle for his place with Ronald Koeman’s preference to deploy Frenkie de Jong closer to the defence and the arrival of Miralem Pjanic.
The first time Busquets set foot in Miami, he immediately felt a connection to the city and his new team. He drew a crowd of hundreds to the stadium and helped Inter Miami win their first match of the season, a League Cup tie against Cruz Azul of Liga MX. His passing was perfect, and his creativity with the ball was evident.
The Spaniard began his career in the youth ranks of several clubs before moving on to Valencia’s B side for the 2007-08 campaign. After impressing, he was promoted to the senior squad for the 2008-09 campaign and made his La Liga debut in September 2009. He became an integral part of the Barcelona team that won the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship, becoming one of football’s most famous holding midfielders.
During his tenure at Camp Nou, Busquets won 32 trophies with Barcelona, including eight La Liga and three UEFA Champions League titles. He also played a crucial role in the Spain national team and retired from international football after the 2018 World Cup.
As a member of the Spanish national team, Busquets has won more than 140 caps and is one of the most capped players in Spanish history. He has played in three FIFA World Cups and other major tournaments, including the 2016 UEFA Euro.
Busquets is the latest high-profile signing for MLS, joining fellow Barcelona greats David Villa (New York City F.C.) and Kaka (Orlando City F.C.). He also spent a season in the United States with Sporting Kansas City in 2012.
During his stint in the league, he won the U.S. Open Cup with the defending champions in 2013 and also helped them reach the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League that same year. In addition to his stellar play in the middle of the park, he is an accomplished defender and has been a critical contributor to the national team’s success. He has also won numerous trophies in his homeland.
Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets made their first appearances as Inter Miami C.F. teammates in the club’s 4-0 victory over Atlanta United on Tuesday night at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Both former Barcelona teammates were in the starting lineup and immediately impacted the game. It didn’t take long for them to create chances, with Busquets lofting a perfect ball over Atlanta’s defence to set up Messi’s shot on goal.
The pair will be an asset to a struggling Inter Miami side that is currently bottom of the Eastern Conference standings with just 18 points. They also face the prospect of losing their home opener against Cruz Azul on July 21 in the first-ever Leagues Cup tournament between MLS and Liga MX teams.
Despite their poor start to the season, the co-owned franchise will still attract interest from soccer fans worldwide. David Beckham and Jorge and Jose Mas own the new MLS expansion franchise. The three owners are hoping to build a successful franchise in Florida, a key market for the sport.
Messi and Busquets are two of the best players in the world, and their presence on the field will elevate MLS to a whole new level. Having both played together for Spain at the World Cup 13 years ago, they have unrivalled experience when it comes to playing at the highest levels of international football.
Both players are known for their composure and ability to manage a game with the precision and accuracy needed to succeed. They are also renowned for breaking down opposition defences and creating scoring opportunities.
The pair’s arrival is a big deal for the new MLS expansion franchise. Their presence on the field will elevate the profile of MLS, which has struggled to attract attention outside the U.S. since its inception. It is also a boon for the local economy, which the economic downturn has hit.
Despite being one of the best players in the world, MLS can be prone to making mistakes on social media. During the week leading up to the Leagues Cup opener, MLS’ official Twitter account posted a photo of ex-Spain teammate Alvaro Arbeloa kissing the World Cup trophy in 2010. While the error wasn’t malicious, it did not go over well with Real Madrid and Barcelona supporters.
After signing the biggest signing in Major League Soccer history, Inter Miami C.F. wanted to continue their impressive offseason. The Herons brought another former Barcelona teammate, Sergio Busquets, on a season-long D.P. deal. The 35-year-old midfielder will be reunited with head coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino, whom he played under in the 2013-14 season with the Spanish club. The two are expected to start together in Tuesday’s Leagues Cup match against Atlanta United.
The pair were unveiled Sunday at a memorable unveiling ceremony at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Despite a delay caused by rain and lightning, a sold-out crowd 20,000 gathered to welcome the new players and see them up close. Guests included celebrities such as Tom Brady, Emilio and Gloria Estefan, and DJ Khaled.
Busquets will occupy one of Inter Miami’s designated player slots and will likely be available for Friday’s Leagues Cup match against Cruz Azul. The former Barcelona captain has played 721 games for the Catalan club over 15 seasons and is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world. He also won a World Cup with Spain in 2010 and has appeared in 20 consecutive MLS matches.
Despite their stellar roster, Inter Miami has had a difficult start to the season and is currently in last place in the Eastern Conference. They hope the additions of Messi and Busquets will help them turn things around.
During the Leagues Cup game against Nashville FC, Messi scored his signature goal, a curling left-footed strike past a wall of defenders and into the top corner of the plane. The goal came after he was introduced into the game and helped the Herons win their first trophy since joining the league in 2020. Afterwards, he was congratulated by his new teammates and the club’s owner Jorge Mas. He said it was an excellent experience for him, and the team is growing together. He also promised that the team would improve its performance. He added that the fans were very supportive.
