Champions League: We can win trophy without Messi – Busquets

Messi PSG

Barcelona midfielder, Sergio Busquets, has insisted they can go all the way and win the Champions League without Lionel Messi.

Busquets however admits that Messi’s departure from the Nou Camp came as a “shock”.

The Blaugrana saw the six-time Ballon d’Or winner walk away from Camp Nou as a free agent over the summer, with Paris Saint-Germain embracing the opportunity to acquire the all-time great.

Barca’s loss has been their gain, but Busquets is eager to see everyone in Catalunya move on and find other ways of claiming major silverware without the South American superstar leading the charge.

Busquets told reporters when quizzed on Messi’s exit: “It was a shock, for everything that Leo gave to Barca and personally to me.

“It was an accumulation of emotions that were difficult to digest, but we have to try to change the story. We are at the beginning of the season and we’ll have to get used to playing without Leo.”
