Sergio Busquets announced his retirement from international football on Friday
The 34-year-old starred alongside his Barcelona team-mate-turned-coach Xavi as Spain won the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012, and the Blaugrana boss believes few can match his impact.
“In the end, it’s a personal decision that you make when you feel the time is right”, said Xavi.
“I wish him the best, now he will be able to rest more and focus on Barca.
“He is a player who has made history. He is one of the best midfielders that football has produced worldwide and, for sure, the best defensive midfielder in the history of Spain”.
