Toronto FC star Sebastian Giovinco: Why I rejected Barcelona

Toronto FC star Sebastian Giovinco has revealed an offer from Barcelona.

Prior to his move to Toronto, the Italian acknowledged an offer from Barcelona in the past and explains why he did not go to the Catalan club.

"It's true that in the past there was interest from Barcelona but I would have been a ballboy there.

"With the three stars they have in attack, I would not have played at all. I wasn't interested because I want to play. Neymar, Messi and Suárez could have played with one leg and still have an impact, so there was no sense in going there."
