Busquets critical of Barcelona following draw at Inter

Sergio Busquets was not a happy man following his Barcelona’s 1-1 draw against Inter Milan at the San Siro Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Spain international has now talked to the media about it.

Barcelona and Inter Milan drew 1-1 at the Giuseppe Meaza San Siro Stadium on Tuesday evening to seal their passage into the round of 16. Malcom got his debut goal for the Catalans on his first Champions League outing ever and put them on their way to three deserved points. However, Mauro Icardi restored parity two minutes from time to ensure that the spoils are shared.

Sergio Busquets who started the game provided his words on Barcelona’s performance and insisted that Malcom deserved his chance and goal. The defensive midfielder was also left feeling that his side deserved to go back home with a win rather than a draw. Speaking to UEFA, Busquets said:

“I think we merited much more than a draw – we were more ambitious than Inter. In the second half we played more openly, created more – perhaps we risked too much. I think our first half level was better – we created chances, completely dominated Inter and ensured Icardi barely touched the ball. Malcom is a smashing player who’s working very hard to earn starting minutes – this goal is a timely reward for him.”

Author’s Take

Sergio Busquets knows Malcom really well after training with him for a few months now. But the best thing for the 21 year old will be to go elsewhere on a loan rather than rushing stuff by staying at Barcelona. However, Busquets was certainly correct about Barcelona deserving the win as they were the dominant force, especially in the first half.
