Barcelona skipper Busquets: Enrique Spain's true leader

Spain captain Sergi Busquets sees Luis Enrique as the true leader of the national team.

The Barcelona skipper, 34, discussed Spain’s World Cup hopes with Panenka.

Busquets says that energy should go “where it’s really needed, which is preparing the games and leaving everything else behind. When you’re young you’re a bit focused on all that but the important thing is the other thing.”

He said that Luis Enrique was “the true leader of the national team”, because it’s him who’s working on it day to day.

“It’s him who knows everyone and what they can bring, him who prepares for the games, convinces us of his way of playing and his why’s, with deeds and explanations. We’ll go to the death with him.”

Busquets saw Brazil and Argentina as “favourites by quite a way” for the tournament and that he would be happy if Argentina won although “while we can, I want Spain to win it”.
