Nelson Semedo speaks up on Barca’s exit. Semedo explains that Barca was forced to sell him for financial reasons. The Portuguese said he didn’t need to think twice before joining Wolverhampton.
“Anything can happen in football, but I was shocked that I was allowed to leave [Barcelona].” “Joining Wolves was a great move, and I didn’t have to second-guess myself,” Nelson Semedo told The Telegraph.
“They [Barca] clarified that they were having financial difficulties and that I was one of the players who could help the club out financially.” There were a lot of people in my shoes. Ivan Rakitic, [Luis] Suarez, and [Arturo] Vidal. Every club is facing financial difficulties as a result of this situation [Covid-19].
“Every club is financially poor because they do not have fans at the stadium.” People were not even allowed into the museum in Barcelona,” the Portuguese continued.
During his three seasons at Camp Nou, Semedo made 124 appearances, scoring two goals and providing 11 assists. Last autumn, Wolverhampton paid €30 million for the right-back.
