Casemiro spoke in an interview with FC Barcelona and praised Sergio Busquets. The Brazilian put the Spaniard at the height of Messi in importance and showed his admiration for his style of play and his intelligence in the field
Carlos Henrique Casemiro is on his own merits one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe. The Brazilian, with his limitations with the ball at his feet, has managed to get strong at Real Madrid and has become someone indispensable. In recent seasons, perhaps only N'Golo Kanté has been at his height when it comes to ball recovery. No one doubts that without him the whites could not have won the three Champions in a row with Zidane.
The media has spoken with the magazine Líbero and has granted an interview in which he has praised a player from FC Barcelona. Specifically, the former Porto showed his admiration for Sergio Busquets, which is for many the best positional midfielder of this last decade. The Madrid player wanted to match up with Leo Messi and Badia and pointed out that for him the triumph of Barça is largely due to his having been in the field.
"We talk about Messi, Suarez or before Neymar, but Busquets is for me the most important. Along with Messi, he is the most important player in Barcelona in recent years. We talk about Iniesta, Xavi, but he was always there with the darkest job is one of the best defensive midfielders. Compared to me it is different. It may not have as much physical deployment as I do, but it is positioned very well. It is always well placed and that is very important, "he said.
The truth is that although they play in the same position, Casemiro and Busquets could not be more different. The Spanish international bases his defensive game from the tremendous tactical intelligence he has always had, since he has never had a great physique. The Brazilian, on the other hand, is physically very powerful and that makes him be in many places. He is also very intelligent, although he bases his game without the ball on his physique and his ability to win duels in one on one.
With the ball, obviously, there is no discussion possible and Catalan is tremendously superior in almost everything. He has much more technique, better vision of the game and has always stood out for being safe with the ball on his feet. The merengue only beats Busquets in attack in relation to the goal, since it has more arrival and a much better and more powerful shot. In short, they are two midfielders that have marked and marked their teams and that have been and will be indispensable in the successes of theirs.
Casemiro praised another midfielder
The captain of the Brazilian team also spoke of another midfielder called to mark an era in Madrid and in Europe. Fede Valverde has uncovered this course as one of the revelations of the year and for Casemiro it has everything to be one of the best. "It's having an incredible season, it's one of the most important in the world and it's growing in every game. In two years, it will be one of the best '8' in the world," he explained. The charrúa, if things are not twisted a lot, will have a rivalry similar to what 'Case' and 'Busi' have had these years with Frenkie de Jong ..
