Girona boss criticises his player for Barcelona comments

Garcia earlier said that he wants to represent the Catalan giants at some point in the future.

Girona head coach Michel has admitted that Aleix Garcia “made a mistake” by revealing that he “would like to play for Barcelona” at some stage in the future.

Girona are now fighting hard for the title this season. They stand second in the La Liga table. The 26-year-old has been a key part of Girona. He appeared in 15 matches in Spain’s top flight, scoring three goals and providing four assists in the process.

Ahead of the clash against Barcelona, Garcia said that he wants to represent the Catalan giants at some point in the future.

“I would like to play for Barcelona. It is the club that I have followed since I was little and the one that I have always liked,” the defensive midfielder told Movistar+.

In response to the comments, Michel told reporters at a press conference: “The best thing that can happen to us in a long week like this is to play the Copa [del Rey], because my mind is focused entirely on Orihuela.

“It’s true that for many people the game on Sunday is more important, but I think Aleix has made a mistake.

“I remember well when I was in the academy at Rayo [Vallecano] against Real Madrid, there were often times when there were more people celebrating their goals than ours, I hope that in Girona, it becomes only Girona.

“That we bring up people 100% Girona. We’ve started a project in which everything is possible, and that’s it. Tomorrow we have an important game, and we have to be 100% focused on it.”

Garcia has played for Girona on 147 occasions in all competitions, scoring eight goals and providing 19 assists in the process.
