The French coach has confirmed the departure of Spanish attacking midfielder Pablo Sarabia, close to signing with Wolverhampton.
“He was not happy here”
“Things are off to a good start. Pablo is a very good player. He was not happy here. If you’re not happy, you can’t be productive. I am not a coach who wants to keep players by force to make up the number. He has this opportunity to join the Premier League. It’s not done yet, but it’s well under way. We talked about it with Luis (Campos) and the president. There is no point in keeping players who are unhappy in the squad. If he can thrive in the Premier League, let him flourish. I wish him good luck. It is not because a player leaves that the squad is reduced.
