‘I feel bad’ – Barcelona boss admits he regrets doing this transfer with Chelsea

Chelsea sealed a transfer deal with Barcelona, to sign up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The deal was sealed on transfer deadline day, and Aubameyang is now a Chelsea player.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has said he regrets the transfer, as Aubameyang was a key player for Barca last season.

Aubameyang joined Barcelona in February, and was an instant hit at the club, and Xavi has said he feels bad about losing the Gabonese international.

Speaking about Aubameyang, Xavi said: “I feel bad because he helped us a lot.

“He was an example on and off the pitch.

“He made a big difference – look at his numbers. As a person, he’s a jewel and always training with a smile on his face.

“It’s a shame because you want to have these type of players in your squad but it was a good opportunity for him and for the club as well.

“We needed to put the pieces of the puzzle together and in the end, I think we’re all happy.

“But I feel bad as a coach to lose a player like Aubameyang. He was an example for the club and for all players.”
