Bergamo (AP) – Football pro Robin Gosens, first nominated for the German national team, has described a move to FC Barcelona as a good compromise.

The 26-year-old, who has both a German and a Dutch passport, said of his decision for the DFB selection: “The choice for the national team should rather be the choice for a country. I was born and grew up in Germany and feel simple. German. “
Speaking of his qualities, the quarter-finalist defender of the Italian Champions League said: “Maybe the total package speaks for me. I have the quality to play on the whole left side; that I have both offensive and defensive value.”
