Xavi’s heated argument with Busquets before bringing him off against Almeria

Spotted: Xavi's heated argument with Busquets before bringing him off against Almeria

Xavi had a bit of an argument with Sergio Busquets in Barcelona’s 1-0 loss to Almeria at the weekend.

In the second half, the Barca manager was annoyed with his captain for not controlling the tempo of the game properly.

He made that clear to the midfielder, who seemed dismayed by it.

He urged him to increase the tempo of his side’s attacks and be more dynamic with his passing.

Busquets was annoyed with this and barked back at the gaffer, asking what he wanted from him.

Xavi was spotted going crazy on the touchline, making gestures to urge Busquets to play at a faster pace and move the ball forward quicker.

After the midfielder failed to accept his demands, the gaffer was forced to bring the Spaniard off for Angel Alarcon in the 76th minute.
