Former Bulgaria forward and Barcelona star Hristo Stoichkov has warned Barcelona’s Pedro not to join Manchester United as he termed the Red Devils’ boss Louis Van Gaal mediocre and destroys the clubs.
Stoichkov, who played under Van Gaal when he was the manager of Barcelona has said that if Pedro joins United, Van Gaal would destroy him. He said If he goes there he would no longer be a footballer. He is destroying all the players because he is so mediocre, players have left because of him. He destroys clubs, he did it with Barcelona, and after they take years to build.
He also added that Pedro is the symbol of Barcelona. Pedro is a symbol of Barcelona, a type of player with energy, he fights to make himself great. Why do Barcelona need to sell him? Stoichkov said.
The 1994 Ballon d’Or winner Stoichkov has made 336 appearances for the Catalans during the 1990s and scored 162 goals for them.
