Why Parma star Gervinho missed deadline day move to Al Sadd - Xavi

goal.com, 1 February 2020, 14:46
The former Barcelona captain revealed the reason why the Ivory Coast international could not complete his switch to Qatar on transfer deadline day

Al Sadd manager Xavi said Gervinho could not complete his move to Qatar because of his late registration on transfer deadline day.

The former Arsenal and Roma forward was reportedly looking to force a move to the Qatar Stars League outfit on Friday but his paperwork from Italy did not arrive on time before the deadline.

Gervinho joined Parma from Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune in 2018 and recently penned a three-year extension that will keep him at the club until 2022.

More teams

After Al Sadd's 3-0 league win on Saturday, Xavi admitted interest in the 32-year-old whom he described as 'an excellent player' and hopes he is still available at the end of the season.

"What I heard from the club's management is that it is difficult to register Gervinho in the squad as the transfer window was closed yesterday," Xavi said.

"If he is registered, he will only register for the next season. He is an excellent player.

"We will try to search for a fifth foreign player during the coming period, as long as he is a free agent not linked to any club.

"I would have liked to have this player (Gervinho), but it is difficult now to register him in the team."

Following the botched move, Gervinho is expected to return to Italy where he has scored four goals in 17 Serie A outings for Parma in this campaign.
