Wolves fullback Nelson Semedo: Barcelona surprised me with sale decision

Wolves fullback Nelson Semedo admits his sale by Barcelona surprised him.

Semedo made the move to Molineux last summer.

He recalled to the Telegraph: "After returning from vacation, I went to Barcelona with my family and we talked. They explained that they had economic problems and that I was one of the players who could leave in order to raise money for the club.

"There were others in the same situation, like Suárez, Vidal and Ivan Rakitic.

"The clubs are not so financially strong because they have no fans at the stadium. In Barcelona, for example, people cannot go to the museum. In football anything it can happen, but I was a little surprised to be let go. It was a good decision to come to Wolves and I didn't even have to think twice."
