|"He's the best defensive central midfielder in the world. Barcelona have a priceless player. If I was reincarnated as a player, I'd like to be like him."|
21/10/2010 FC Barcelona 4 Sevilla 0
Part 3 is from the very beginning of 2010/11 season, the Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla. Guardiola came up with this new idea of how to bring the ball up from defence by dropping Busquets into between the 2 centre backs to create more width to the game. The full backs will stretch the came, 2 centre backs are very wide of eachother and that cap is filled with Busquets who plays the 'libero' role.
|Busquets's role in this system is huge.|
|When starting the attack, it's his decision when to drop between the 2 centre backs.|
|When Busquets come between the 2 defenders, they will move higher up the pitch and more away from eachother.|
|This will create a V-formation from the back, start with Busquets as the libero, then the 2 centre back and stretching the game are 2 full backs.|
|You can see here how far the 2 defenders - Pique and Alves are. But it's not a problem, because their positions are filled.|
