Days before the upcoming confrontation between Barcelona and Getafe in the sixth round of the Spanish League Championship, Angel Rodriguez revealed the reason for his failure to join the Catalan team.
Setien behind the failure of Rodriguez’s move to Barcelona:
Angel in said Press releases: “They told me that coach Quique Setien decided not to sign me with Barca, after I was close to that, and chose Braithwaite, I don’t know if this is true or not.”
“In the end, the coach has to make a decision and that is what happened,” he added. I understand that he preferred Braithwaite, he is a great player and younger than me, and he will definitely be able to play great matches with Barcelona. ”
He continued, “There were many players who were in that long list, but the statistics were in my favor, as I scored a lot of goals that season.”
“In the end, everyone wants to play alongside Lionel Messi,” he concluded by saying, “This is exactly the case. He is the best player in the world, and the brightest on the field. Everyone wants to be on his side, or play against him at the very least.
