Although it does some days the sportive director of the Seville, Monchi, ensured that it was the club hispalense the one who decided no traspasar to Kevin Gameiro to the FC Barcelona this past summer to the not seducing the proposal culé to the team sevillista, the version of the French forward, that now is a member of the Athletic of Madrid, is something distinct.

As it has explained Gameiro in statements conceded to "RTL", if it did not finish fichando by the Barça was because he did not want to, when thinking that could not compete by the titularity with Luis Suárez, Neymar Jr and Leo Messi in the Barcelona staff.

"In the Barça there are three monsters in the forward and thought that would play more in the Athletic"

"In the FC Barcelona there are three monsters in the forward and thought that had more possibilities to play in the Athletic of Madrid. I think that the style of the Athletic is ideal for my form to play", has confessed the ariete Frenchman of the Athletic.

In fact, it thinks that even the game of the group rojiblanco benefits him more than if there was recalado in the Barça. "I think that now I work even more defensivamente. It cost me a lot the pre-season in the physical, works very hard. Now I think that I am more entonado for the contragolpe and the attack, and the defence. I am accustoming Me".

It fits to remember that, days backwards, Monchi said the following on the no-signing of Gameiro by the Barcelona: "it Was an interest that lasted the time that lasted the proposal and said that no. If you want to buy me this jacket, that costs 60 euros, and offer me five, as I say that no. It did not arrive neither to the necessary minimum. It was what transmitted me the agent", commented then the director of the Andalusian club.
