He played in Barcelona with Lionel Messi and Neymar, was champion and revealed: "I was coming back to my house crying"The player was one of the purchases most questioned by fans
If one reviews the history of Barcelona, one finds great players who wore his shirt: Lionel Messi, Neymar, Xavi, Andrés Iniesta, Luis Suárez, Sergio Busquets, Charles Puyol, Diego Armando Maradona and Johan Cruyff, among others, defended the colors of the Catalan club. But it's also characterized by incorporations that are not up to the task. The protagonist of this story is not one of the worst signings of the Josep María Bartomeu era and that he confessed that he didn't have a good time sharing a team with La Pulga, Ney and other stars.
Douglas Pereira arrived at Barça in July 2014 and nobody knew who he was. He had been signed from Sao Paulo where he wasn't a starter. "He's the side we want", said Luis Enrique at a press conference, who could be "accused" of being an accomplice in this. Like many random Brazilians that the Catalan club signed, Douglas hardly ever played: "In Barcelona I had very difficult moments with injuries. I came home crying every day", said the player.
In Barcelona he signed for five years in 2014 but he was barely two since in 2016 he was transferred to Sporting Gijón. Then in 2017 he went to Benfica. The fifth year of his contract with Barça was spent at Sivasspor in Turkey. In 2019 with the pass in his power he signed for Besiktas but since that year he has played little and nothing due to injuries.
Douglas alternated starts with substitutions this 2020-21 season until he tore his ankle ligament in October 2020 and that changed everything. He has a contract until 2022 but it is most likely that he will terminate in June 2021 and return to Brazil.
