Sergio Busquets, key to Barcelona's past, present and future

Sergio Busquets is one of the most underrated players in world football. Despite having played a key role in bringing 22 collective trophies to his teams, including three Champions Leagues for Barcelona and the World and European Cups for Spain, there is still an inexplicable number of fans out there who just consider him a slightly above-average footballer -- a player who just happens to be in the right place at the right time.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Although many suspected that Busquets' reputation may never fully recover from the controversial peekaboo, which resulted in Thiago Motta being sent off in the 2010 Champions League semifinals, his consistently outstanding performances since then are slowly but surely helping him silence his numerous critics.

Busquets has made an average of 47 club appearances per season since he was promoted into the first team by Pep Guardiola back in the summer of 2008. If the 27-year-old became an indispensable player for not only the current Bayern Munich supremo, but also prestigious managers such as Vicente del Bosque, Luis Enrique and Tito Vilanova, it is certainly thanks to his vision, technique, tenacity and leadership.
