Barcelona striker Keirrison admits Benfica loan move was mistake

Barcelona striker Keirrison admits he should never have joined Benfica on-loan.

Keirrison is now on a temporary deal with Cruzeiro.

"There were many clubs [after me]," he said.

"Benfica tabled an offer, and Barcelona accepted it. If I knew, I would have not have moved to Benfica. They had six or seven strikers, and I did not know that.

"We learn from life. Benfica are a big club in Europe, but there is no point in moving to a club with a lot of strikers because it is not by chance that they are there."
