It can be done!

For years it has seemed that it was impossible to take possession of a football away from Barcelona star Xavi. But last night his team-mate Sergio Busquets gave a masterclass in how to nick the ball from the midfield magician.

Europe’s elite will have been watching closely as Busquets managed to tackle Xavi during last night’s Copa Del Rey clash with Athletic Bilbao.

The secret seems to be toe-bunting the ball away from him with a slight suggestion that you will toe-bunt him too if necessary.
