Former Barcelona midfielder, Paulinho, returned to the Chinese Super League, Guangzhou Evergrande, after almost one year at the Camp Nou because the Catalans were struggling to accommodate a host of non-European Union players.
His brief stint(49 appearances) with the Blaugrana produced 9 goals, 3 assists and also culminated into a domestic double in the 2017/2018 season.
The Brazilian midfielder visited the Cam Nou yesterday during a training session and had a thing or two to say about his short stint with the Spanish champions.
What he said below:
“I am very happy to see my ex-team mates and the staff again, I really appreciated the people at the Club,” Paulinho explained, taking advantage of his visit to training this Wednesday. “Barça always play well. When I can, I watch all their games and they’re doing very well,” the Brazilian midfielder added.
He also spoke about Barça’s Brazilian players: “Coutinho I know very well from Brazil and Barça, Arthur will surely do good things thanks to his quality and philosophy of play, while Malcom is a young player with a bright future ahead.”
Referring to his time at the club, he noted that; ”In the time that I played here, we won the League and the Cup, it made me very happy.”
