'Arsène Wenger & Fabio Capello wanted to join Barcelona'

Table of Contents
Former Barcelona president Joan Gaspart has claimed that both Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger and England boss Fabio Capello fancied moving to the Blaugrana in 2001.

Gaspart tried to tempt Wenger and Capello to the Camp Nou following the dismissal of Lorenzo Serra Ferrer and prior to the permanent appointment of interim coach Carles Rexach.

"When Serra Ferrer left we negotiated with Arsène Wenger and Fabio Capello to coach Barça," Gaspart told Com Radio.

"I met Wenger in Paris. He wanted to come to Barça but Arsenal didn't let him. The Arsenal chairman ordered him to fulfil his contract."

He added: "Capello also wanted to come, but AS Roma didn't let him either."
