Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu: I was too young to make it at Barcelona

Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu has no regrets over his time at Barcelona.

The midfielder is currently enjoying superb form with the Hornets.

Deulofeu said: "It was a good time, because I was there for many years, but it was also complicated because I was very young and I had to compete with the best players in the world in a stadium like the Nou Camp.

"When you are so young, it's a bit difficult. You need a little confidence, and the only one who explained something to me is (Pep) Guardiola. It takes a lot of things to succeed there, you cannot live in the past. If you do, you're dead."
