Barcelona midfielder Busquets full of pride after landmark game

Barcelona midfielder Sergi Busquets was full of pride after a landmark game for victory over Levante.

Busquets played his 593th game for Barcelona, levelling Carles Puyol, the legendary defender who featured for the club between 1999 and 2014.

Posting to social media, the midfielder stated: "Last night was a special game for me, equalling a Cule legend like Carles Puyol. It's a pride to be able to make history and put my name beside the greats of this club. This has been the club of my life and the best in the world. I also want to thank all the people that have made it possible and accompanied me in these games. I am very happy to be the player with the fourth-most games for Barcelona."

Ahead of him are Xavi Hernandez (767 games), Leo Messi (746) and Andres Iniesta (674).
