Ex-Blaugrana Paulinho grateful for the privilege of having featured for Barcelona
- The midfielder admits that his Barcelona stint was the main chapter of his whole career.
- Paulinho believes that he is still fondly remembered at the Camp Nou.
Ex-Blaugrana Paulinho has admitted that playing for Barcelona was a pinnacle of his career:
"I am happy to have been part of the history of such a big club like Barca," said the 31-year-old midfielder, as cited by Diario AS. "I think fans have a good memory of me."
Back in January, Chinese giants Guangzhou Evergrande have taken up the option to sign Barcelona midfielder Paulinho for 50 million euros after he spent half-a-year on loan with the club.
Last summer, Paulinho's return to China has been a rather shocking move for everyone, including the coach, Ernesto Valverde, who has reportedly learned about this incident via radio.
All in all, Paulinho scored 9 goals in 49 matches for Barcelona in the season 2017/18. He helped the team to win La Liga and Copa del Rey finishing the campaign among the most-used players.
