πŸ”’ Barcelona's Sergio Busquets takes pride after equaling Carles Puyol record

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has taken pride in equaling Carles Puyol’s record for the club.

Busquets made his 593 appearances for Barca on Sunday in their win over Levante to become the fourth player with the highest number of appearance in Barca colours with the Spaniard record only bettered by Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

And taking to Instagram to acknowledge the feat, Busquets said: “Last night was a special game for me, equaling a Club legend like Carles Puyol. It’s a pride to be able to make history and put my name beside the greats of this club.

“This has been the club of my life and the best in the world. I also want to thank all the people that have made it possible and accompanied me in these games. I am very happy to be the player with the fourth-most games for Barcelona.”

The midfielder who is on the twilight of his career was expected to have a reserved role under Ronald Koeman after the arrival of Miralem Pjanic but that hasn’t been the case with the midfielder starting nine of Barca’s 11 La Liga games this season.
