Girona chief Carcel: Convincing Man City midfielder Douglas Luiz was tough

Girona sports chief Quique Carcel is delighted with their deal for Manchester City midfielder Douglas Luiz.

Luiz has returned to Girona on a season-long loan after last term's success.

Carcel told Mundo Deportivo: “The possibility of him coming back to Girona was complicated. I wanted Douglas from minute one, but I was aware that it would be complicated.

“I went to see him personally to convey to him my feelings and what we wanted.

"He was not 100%, clear, but the desire to show his football have been key."
