Pep Guardiola has been talking about Sergio Busquets and says he expects the Barcelona midfielder to move into coaching after he hangs up his boots.

The Manchester City boss also praised Busquets after he made his 500th appearance for Barcelona in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid.

“What he has done in his career is because he is so clever, so good.

”He has to be so proud. Playing 500 games at Barcelona is not easy. Hopefully he can play many, many more years but he is not a teenager anymore.

”Sooner or later he will become a manager. We will see Busquets on the bench.”

It may be a little while until we see Busquets in the dugout. The 30-year-old signed a new contract in September which will keep him at the club until 2023.
