Pep Guardiola says Lionel Messi was impressed with Sergio Busquets after just two training sessions

Following Guardiola's promotion to Barcelona's senior side in 2008, the current Manchester City boss decided to bring Busquets up with him. 

Pep Guardiola reveals Lionel Messi was seriously impressed with Sergio Busquets

The 30-year-old, now in his 10th year at the club, has been integral to the club's success

'I remember what Messi told me,' Guardiola told Universo Valdano.

'After two or three days of training with him, he came to me and said, 'I like this one'. And I said, 'When there is trouble, he will be there'.

Guardiola still clearly admires the midfield general by praising the player's unselfish style of play.

He said: 'He does everything for those around him.'

The 30-year-old, now in his 10th year at Barca, has established himself as one of the most integral players in one of the club's greatest-ever teams, having won the Spanish league title seven times and Champions League on three different occasions.

The Spanish midfielder has helped Barcelona win the Champions League on three occasions

Guardiola revealed that it only took a couple of training sessions for Messi to be impressed

While Guardiola is still enjoying his time at City, he did admit that he wants to go back to where it all began to finish his career eventually.

The 47-year-old has revealed his desire to return to the youth setup at Barcelona before stepping away from the dugout.

'My teams are going to try to play how I want,' he told Jorge Valdano.

'I will finish where I started; my final steps will be with youth teams, hopefully Barcelona.'

His contract with the club expires in 2021 and he has previously said he would not return to Barcelona as manager, although sporting director is a position that interests him.

Guardiola took charge of Barcelona B in 2007 before becoming boss of the senior side

    Ben Foakes has shown his prowess both with the gloves and the bat in England's series with Sri Lanka

    be on Leeds United's books as a youngster but it is fair to assume he will never want to kick a ball again.</p><p>Bairstow has told those, like Matt Prior, who questioned his participation in England's games of football that he will restrict himself to the role of referee from now on and he could be forgiven for kicking himself rather than the ball.</p><p>Ben Foakes is enjoying a magnificent debut series as England's wicketkeeper in Sri Lanka</p><p>Foakes has proved his class both with the gloves and as a batsman during the first two Tests</p><p>It remains to be seen whether the injured Jonny Bairstow will get his wicketkeeper spot back</p><p>Clearly Alec Stewart was not guilty of hyperbole when he said last summer that Foakes was already the best wicketkeeper in the world. </p><p>What he did not say was that his protege was also good enough with the bat to have made a hundred and a half century in his first two Tests.</p><p>Not only has he gone a long way here already towards proving his director of cricket at Surrey right but Foakes has also shown he is a classy enough batsman to more than justify an England place at seven.</p><p>Foakes was supreme again in both disciplines on Saturday, firstly extending his overnight score to an unbeaten 65 and then producing a quality of keeping rarely seen in these days of batsmen taking the gloves as their secondary role.</p><p>Not since James Foster, who should have played 100 Tests, have England had a gloveman as good as this, Foakes being a throwback to the days when keeping was an art rather than a skill coaches believed could be taught to good batsmen.</p><p>Foakes started day four in Pallekele by extending his overnight score with the bat to 65 </p><p>He then stumped Sri Lanka opener Kaushal Silva off the bowling of Jack Leach </p><p>It was only in the fourth over of the Sri Lankan innings on Saturday that Foakes made a stumping chance offered by Kaushal Silva look easy while his anticipation in claiming Dimuth Karunaratne off a parry from Keaton Jennings was exceptional.</p><p>It is easy to see why Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace, both former Sri Lanka coaches, were privately advocating the selection of Foakes in these demanding conditions when looking ahead last summer but the return of Jos Buttler to Test cricket pushed Surrey's adopted Essex man out of contention.</p><p>England did not need three keepers here, so the theory went, but the twist of Bairstow's ankle was the twist of fate Foakes needed to be given an opportunity he has grasped not only with both hands but with his technically correct bat.</p><p>It is solely with the bat now that Bairstow's future surely lies and England would do well to try to find a way back in Friday's third Test in Colombo for a sensitive man who remains one of their most important players.</p><p>The question is how. Sam Curran is a doubt with the side injury that kept him off the field in Pallekele yesterday but England could not go into any Test with only Jimmy Anderson and Ben Stokes, who did not bowl yesterday, to offer seam. </p><p>Foakes (centre) and Keaton Jennings (right) celebrate the dismissal of Dimuth Karunaratne </p><p>Foakes and Jennings celebrate after England removed the dangerous Roshen Silva for 37</p><p>Bairstow has been reduced to the role of bag-carrier in this Test after injuring his ankle</p><p>Foakes will certainly never forget his first tour with England as he continues to impress</p><p>That could offer a route back for Stuart Broad but there were influential voices in selection for this tour who would have left him at home, preferring instead to have a look at Olly Stone or opt for the greater batting ability of Chris Woakes.</p><p>Certainly, if England complete victory in this second Test today to win the series, a dead rubber might be the perfect opportunity to see if Stone could provide the express pace they have been lacking, particularly overseas.</p><p>That leaves Bairstow's return dependent on whether England will leave out one of their three spinners, with Adil Rashid being the most vulnerable, and go with an extra batsman in what again will be demanding conditions.</p><p>It is another ticklish selection dilemma but one thing is certain. Ben Foakes will be one of the first names on the teamsheet and Bairstow will have to learn to live with that for some time to come.</p><p> The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. </p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p>Your comment will be posted to MailOnline as usual.</p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p> We will automatically post your comment and a link to the news story to your Facebook timeline at the same time it is posted on MailOnline.
