Gasol refutes rumors to join Barcelona rumors: has not returned to the game state
Chinanews.com client, February 22. Former NBA player Paul Gasol posted on social media in the early morning of the 22nd Beijing time, denying rumors of joining Barcelona, saying that he has not recovered to the physical state of the last game.
Gasol said: “Recently I heard about some Spanish media reports on my future trends. Here, I can tell you frankly that my body has not recovered to the state where I can play games. At this stage, I will still focus on my own. On recovery training. If I have anything to announce, I will tell everyone through my social media. Thank you everyone for your love and support.”
