Former Barcelona star Hristo Stoichkov has warned Barcelona’s Pedro against joining Manchester United and he also bashed Louis van Gaal as a mediocre manager who destroys football clubs.
Stoichkov, who played under Van Gaal when he was the manager of Barcelona, said,
“If he goes there he would no longer be a footballer. He is destroying all the players because he is so mediocre, players have left because of him. He destroys clubs, he did it with Barcelona, and after they take years to build.
Pedro is a symbol of Barcelona, a type of player with energy, he fights to make himself great. Why do Barcelona need to sell him? “
The 1994 Ballon d’Or winner Stoichkov has made 336 appearances and scored 162 goals for the Catalan Giants.
