Sergio Busquets has tipped Barcelona team-mate Frenkie de Jong and Spain national team-mate Fabian Ruiz to become the best midfielders in the world in the years to come.
The Dutchman is slowly fitting into the Barcelona side after his transfer this summer, while the Napoli midfielder is also beginning to establish himself as a crucial figure in Spain’s midfield.
Busquets praised their quality and claims they will become the best in their positions one day.
“They are two great players,” Busquets told the press, according to Marca.
“They’re very young with a lot to give now and in the future. They’ll be the best in their position.”
Spain were pushed to the brink by Romania in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Thursday and it took an inspirational performance from Kepa Arrizabalaga for the visitors to win 2-1. Busquets claimed that Spain were dominant despite what the scoreline suggested.
“It seemed that we lost control, but it wasn’t really the case,” Busquets explained.
“We had them under control as far as was possible. The red card changed everything, but I still think that we didn’t suffer that much despite the chance that Kepa stopped.”
