Deulofeu: Will I support Barcelona in the UCL? No, it is a bygone era

Going through one of the best spells of his career with Watford, Gerard Deulofeu claimed that he won't be cheering for former club Barcelona in the Champions League as that is all in the past for him now.

The Blaugrana drew Manchester United in the quarter-final stage, with the winner of the tie set to face Liverpool or Porto in the semi-finals.

Despite Deulofeu coming through La Masia and later returning to the club, he insisted that he has no horse in the Champions League race.

"I won't be cheering for Barcelona, it is a bygone era for me and I'm at Watford now," he told Radio MARCA.

"I love watching football, but I don't support anyone who are not my team.

"I wish Pep [Guardiola] the best, whatever happens."

The former Milan winger also admitted that he has a recall to the national team firmly in his sights.

"I'm close but I'm still a step away and I'm going to work 100 percent to be able to return," he added.

"Any player would like to be there, and myself even more so, as I've had many beautiful moments with my country."
