Former Inter Coach Frank de Boer bitterly criticised Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa, accusing him of having a poor work ethic and “thinking himself a superstar.”
The striker was signed at the age of 20 from Santos and failed to make any impact, scoring one goal and having no Serie A starts.
He was loaned out to Benfica, where the situation barely improved, before being returned to Santos on loan with option to buy.
“Gabigol thought he was still in Brazil and would walk rather than run,” De Boer told ESPN.
