Wenger: Busquets 'pretends to be hurt'
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has slammed Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets for play-acting, accusing the Spaniard of 'moral weaknesses'.
The 23-year-old has become a fixture of the Barcelona midfield, and won 38 caps for his country, but some fans have criticised him for play-acting and committing calculated fouls.

Wenger, speaking to Eurosport, said that while Busquets was a gifted footballer, he also had a cynical aspect to his game.

"He is very smart and knows how to help the team," Wenger said.

"He's generous and tactically very strong. He knows how to speed the game with great and quick passes."

"He's clever, he forces the ref to give yellow cards to the Spanish opponents. He pretends being hurt whereas he's the one who kicked. He has all the moral weaknesses that help in football. His intelligence really helps the team."

Barcelona's star-studded team have some diminutive players, and Wenger also pointed to Busquet's height as a real asset to his team.

"Barcelona needs his height above all for set pieces because they are very vulnerable," Wenger added. "He's one of the few in the team who is more than 1.80m tall. Except him, no one can really defend on a set piece."


I don't know why he said all this but it is true, busquets has lots of talent but his play acting is so stupid that it hides his true skill. For his sake I hope he knocks it off!

O I got this from Eurosport.

Diving is part of the tactics for Barcelona. Busquet is extremely intelligent and uses it to the team's benefit.

I know he is lol. It got to the point that it is pathetic. Busquets deserves all the criticism because that kind of behavior should not be tolerated.

Ok I am pretty sure he is being sarcastic or I hope he is. No coach should praise that kind of play acting !

Ya everyone pretty much hates or doesn't respect busquets and that's no surprise.

Why do you guys think Wengar talked about him? Just frustration ?

Busquets deserves any ill words that comes his way. He has earned every bit of it. It's one thing to to do some clever gamesmenship in big / important games as most teams do but he does it when were winning by 5 goals too against Gijon and the likes.

He lacks any moral fiber whatsoever and I can barely stand to look at him as he really grinds my gears.

How I wish we never got rid of Yaya. Such a class act compared to Busquets and a better player too.

What a beautiful little sentence that is. There's other players who are just as bad, but it's just that more annoying if you do it for a team that would be perfectly capable of winning without cheating.

Every team has a couple bad apples, but Busquets really takes the cake. What Mark van Bommel is to tactical fouls Busquets is to dives.

Even you don't believe this mate. Come on, one thing to bring his morality into question, but this? Toure left Barcelona very defensively insecure with his forward runs and Barcelona weren't punished in 09. He didn't listen to Pep's instructions. Busquets might act like a scumbag sometimes but he is a great footballer. Guardiola wasn't clean himself and it happnes in Spanish football, victimisng BusqGOAT is a bit harsh.

Well the Englis see it differntly. It's called being clever in Spain. Cultural difference. Just stop picking on one player. Most players do it in every Spanish Game. Barcelona might do it the most because the ac=verage 70% possession.

I have said Yaya is better then Busquets for pretty much ever, even when Busquests didn't have this reputation. People seem to forget Yaya was the DM on the best Barca team and club football team ever IMO and brings way more to the table then Busquets does.

All of us Barca fans were surprised a couple games ago when Sergio shot the ball because his game has gotten so static. Yaya can play pretty much any position on the field and people forget he played defense in the CL final against a front 3 of Ronaldo, Tevez and Rooney and dominated.

The man is a one man wrecking ball in midfield and and helped us out way more in set pieces (our weakest part to our game) then Sergio does and in La Liga he was so much bigger and stronger then everyone that he intimidated other teams every game.

Not to mention it's not even close, Yaya is 10 times better going forward and when teams park the bus against us he is way more of an asset to help us score then Sergio ever was just from his forward runs alone.

Sergio is great at what he does, but that is all he does. Yaya offers so much more. Some don't agree with me but I don't really care. I said from the day we got rid of Yaya we would regret it and IMO we have.

And why in the world are you bringing Pep into this? What are you suggesting? Pep also said his worst mistake at Barca was getting rid of Yaya.

He doesn't seem to say it as an insult, more of a compliment. Wenger obviously believes there's nothing wrong with it, too.

What are you guys trying to say by these posts? Do you want Barca fans to kill Wenger for speaking the truth? I don't really get it?
