Robert ‘should have signed Gameiro’

Barcelona technical secretary Robert Fernandez says he wishes he’d signed Sevilla’s Kevin Gameiro when he worked for Atletico Madrid.

Gameiro has been prolific for Los Rojiblancos, including netting the equaliser in the Europa League Final against Liverpool, and has also been linked with Barca, who play Sevilla in the Copa del Rey Final.

“I’ve followed him for years. When I was at Atletico I went to see him and didn’t sign him. That was a bad decision. He’s had four very good years at Sevilla,” Mundo Deportivo reports Robert telling a television interview.

Robert also warned that Sevilla are more than capable of snatching the Cup, and can’t be taken lightly.

“They’re a team that competes as well as Atletico or Real Madrid. They could push the situation to its limits,” he added.
