Todibo: It sucks to go to Barcelona and not play

Sun 28 March 2021 | 9:10

Nice defender is reluctant to return to Camp Nou.

Jean-Clair Todibo

joined

Barcelona

from

Toulouse

in January 2019 for €1 million and was considered to be Barca’s future phenomenon, however, the French center-back failed to find his way into the main squad.

Last winter, he went on loan to

Schalke

, but the coronavirus outbreak prevented the club from signing the 21-year-old for € 25 million, despite being a first-team regular.

Todibo left for

Benfica

on a two-year loan deal in the summer, but played in only two games and could not find his big break in the Portuguese club.  He eventually returned to Barca in the winter transfer window and was loaned to

Nice

on a temporary deal until the end of 2020-21 season.

In an interview with

RMC Sport

, the Frenchman has talked about his time at Camp Nou, saying he doesn’t want to re-join the Spanish giants, where he doesn’t get enough chance to prove his worth.

"It sucks to go to Barcelona and not play. I prefer to wear the Sedan jersey and play rather than go to Barcelona and not play,"

Todibo said.

"Already you have less criticism at Sedan. The presentation at Barcelona, ​​it's madness, but I only played five games, it's bogus in real life.

"I won La Liga in 2019, but I didn't help the team, I played when we had won the title! I think I can do better."
