Luis Enrique wants Sergio Busquets to play another World Cup.
Both Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba has been praised after Spain’s 1-1 draw with Germany.
Spain boss Luis Enrique explains why he still counts on both the veterans.
“Alba is a player of the highest level, just like Busi, it’s a campaign and it’s normal, people get tired of veterans,” he said.
“I bring them because they are spectacular. Jordi Alba is the best winger in the world in the last third of the field, just like Busi, they have been trying to retire him for many years. Hopefully we will convince him to follow another World Cup.”
Luis Enrique needs only a draw in the final game against Japan to progress to the next stages of the World Cup.
“When I watch the game afterward, I’ll like it better,” he said. “Especially this one. I saw a first half that was perhaps better, but we lacked a little bit of confidence to realise that we could hurt Germany more. We couldn’t control the game and they caught us with a mistake. We were ambitious until the end and I’ll be happy to see that tomorrow.”
