Born in Sabadell, he joined the Barša youth system in the summer of 2005 from Jabac. That season, playing for the Juvenil A side, he won three major trophies in a team that also included the likes of Bojan, Giovani, Jeffren and Marc Crosas.
In the 2006-07 season, Sergi Busquets continued with Juvenil A and was one of the core players in
the side coached by └lex Garcia. In his third year at the level, and despite still being a
midfielder, Sergi scored 7 goals in 26 games.
The next season, Busquets was promoted to Barša B under Pep Guardiola. He didn’t play until the 12th game, but from then on he managed to hold down a regular place in the starting line-up, playing 23 games and scoring two goals.
After playing with the first team in the Copa Catalunya in the 2007-08 season and again in 2008-09, Sergi made his league debut on September 13, 2008 against Racing (1-1). The player started the match and played the full 90 minutes. His excellent form for Barša took him to the Spain national team. He made his international debut on 1st April 2009 against Turkey (1-2) in the Ali Sami Yen stadium.
Sergi Busquets is the son of Carles Busquets, who played in goal for FC Barcelona in the 1990s.
Sergi Busquets is a very complete midfielder renowned for his intelligence on the field. Born in Sabadell, he positions himself well and is a good reader of the game. Busquets adds security to the team because he rarely gives the ball away and is also solid in his defensive duties.
He is a versatile player and gets into goalscoring positions. His tactical awareness and height (almost 190 cm) mean that despite his natural position being in midfield, he can also play at centre back or centre forward.
