On Saturday, Luis Suarez marked his return from injury by scoring with virtually his first touch in Barca's 5–2 LaLiga win over Valencia.

Busquets, who has played with Suarez since the 32-year-old arrived in Spain in 2014, has now hailed the Uruguayan forward's impact and described him as being the world's leading frontman.

"He is the best striker in the world," Busquets said, as per Marca.

"At the level of hunger, work and goal he gives us a lot. It will come very well because in the end the points are achieved with goals."

The 2010 Fifa World Cup winner also reserved some praise for Guinnea-Bissau-born wonderkid Ansu Fati, who capped his first start for the club with a goal and an assist, and offered him a piece of advice.

"He is very young, we know the qualities he has with 16 years," Busquets added.

"…Every time he comes out they compare him with many players. He must be wrapped up, keep growing and taking his steps. Let him know where he is and how hard it is (and keep his) feet on the ground.

"When you are young, you are not aware of everything, the compliments are honest because you have deserved it, but we know that this is difficult and you must be constant. He has conditioning and a lot of head.

"Hopefully it is the beginning of a very long and very beautiful story here."
