Fulham midfielder Jean Michel Seri: Missing Barcelona move hurt me

Fulham midfielder Jean Michel Seri admits seeing a move to Barcelona collapse hurt him.

Seri was with Nice when Barca pulled the plug on a deal last year.

He told Guardian: "It affected me, yes.

"Everything collapsed because of a question of money. But what can be done? Life goes on.

"Maybe it was God's will. I am a Christian, I have kept the faith and, as the time God gave me the opportunity to go to Portugal, maybe it was my destiny to come here, to England, rather than Spain."
