Busquets talked in press conference after his renewal

Sergio Busquets appeared in press conference after his renewal last week and before the match against Villarreal, the second leg of Copa del Rey's semifinals. But above all, he was asked about La Liga, Real Madrid's tie and his feelings on the field when playing along with Mascherano. Here you have his best statements:

Copa del Rey

"We have little advantage in the semifinal of Copa del Rey but we'll play with the same ambition."

La Liga

"We go match by match. Madrid's tie don't change anything. We always play to win."

"It was difficult to play against Granada at their stadium which such grass."

"There are two weeks left for El Clásico. We still don't know if this match will be decisive."

His position

"When Mascherano is on the field, I play as central midfielder. It's not a unknown position. The coach decides."

"Mascherano is not a threat for me. We all want the best for the team."

"I'm a regular player. I try to do my best in every match. You sometimes are not as good as I would like, but I'm always committed."

Players angry when subbed-off

We don't talk about that but this is something positive, as it means everyone is willing to play."

Childhood

"When I was a child, I didn't have any idol. I used to watch all the players, specially Barça ones, but footballers around the world."

"I started playing as forward. I was tall and this gave me advantage. Now I play were I feel better."
