Agent: 'Gabigol needs to play'

Gabriel Barbosa’s agent complained at the lack of playing time the Inter-owned striker is getting at Benfica. “A football player is like an aeroplane.”

The striker didn’t get a single Serie A start after his €29.5m move from Santos and has struggled for playing time on loan in Portugal too, managing one goal in four competitive appearances for a total of 148 minutes of football.

“Lisbon is good for him, he’s happy and that’s all that matters,” agent Wagner Ribeiro told UOL Esporte in Brazil.
