Sandro Rosell has cricitised Barcelona for not signing Brazil pair Luis Fabiano and Pepe.

The former Barcelona vice-president was instrumental in attracting Ronaldinho and Edmilson to the Nou Camp during his time at the club and remains a big fan of Brazilian players.

"Between the Luis Fabiano of today and (Thierry) Henry there is a world in favor of the Sevillista; who knows if we will be able to fix this mistake," Rosell told AS, urging Barca to move for the Sevilla striker.

He also said: "Pepe will be the best centre-half in the world; Madrid has guessed right in signing him."
