Sergio Busquets - Most Underrated Defensive midfielder ever.
Sergio Busquets, also known as "The Octopus of Badia," is the most underappreciated defensive midfielder in the history of the game. He is also known as "the Silent Conductor" because of his quiet demeanor. There is a rhyme and reason to those names. I've had the pleasure of watching players such as Zidane, Pirlo, Kaka, Gerrard, Lampard, Lahm, Ronaldinho, Xavi, and Iniesta play football throughout my life. When it came to defending the ball, none of them came close to Sergio Busquets' level of performance. You can disagree with them about their playing position, but it doesn't really matter. It is their responsibility to defend the ball, regardless of where they are on the field. And when it comes to defending, Sergio Busquets is the boss of all of them. It is extremely difficult to wrestle the ball away from him. He possesses incredible control over the ball as well as the ability to maintain his composure under pressure. This player is a fantastic baller in the game. He plays in a position that allows him to communicate with players on both sides of the field. This is one of the reasons why he was dubbed "the silent conductor." Everything appears to be so simple when he has the ball in his leg. He is able to see things that a normal player or midfielder is unable to. And when he doesn't have the ball in his hands, he is always on the lookout for opportunities to intercept it. He is always willing to do the dirty work in order to save his team. But alas! he is not greatly appreciated at all. Sometimes people compare him with the likes of Casemiro, Jorginho, and Kante. Some even say that they are better than him. I laugh at them when they say they are better than Busquets.
