Sergio Busquets will play his 8th season in FC Barcelona. The midfielder is one of the four captains and after Xavi Hernández's departure, he will do a step forward. He and Rakitic talked this morning in press conference after arriving in San Francisco, where they will stay until Saturday.
He talked about Xavi, Pedro, the new challenges... here you have his main statements:
"I miss him. His absence will affect us in and out of the field. With his departure I will do a step forward. It's a responsibility and a pride. I think I will do it well, I have worked a lot to be here."
Pedro Rodríguez's future
"I hope he stays here. That's what I want, but he has to decide for himself. I talked with him but I won't say anything. I understand his doubts because he wants to play. There is a lot of competition and here we have the best."
Ambition after the treble
"We want to keep wining. No one got two Champions Leagues in a row and we will try it. We will also fight for the Super Cups, La Liga, La Copa... we won't stop."
Galaxy 1 - Barça 2
"I saw the team in a good condition, physically and tactically. We were good in defense and maybe we lacked a little bit of accuracy. Anyway, the results are not important in the preseason."
"Playing everywhere in the world is important. In the USA soccer is growing. If they keep like this, his competition will be better every time."
