Kamil Grosicki has revealed there were “complications” with his proposed Burnley deal but still dreams of playing in the Premier League.
Clarets fans were excited about the prospect of signing the vastly-experience Poland international. However, they were eventually shocked to find out that the transfer had not been completed in time.
“I didn’t expect this coming,” Grosicki admitted.
“Unfortunately there were some complications. When I landed I Manchester, it was still three hours to deadline, but many things were still not agreed.
“We were negotiating for almost two hours, but we couldn’t reach agreement. If I sign, what they offer me, I wouldn’t be happy at all.
“My agents made some mistakes. Some people let me down, but I don’t want to tell who.
“My dream was to play in Premier League, I was very close… I hope maybe in the future I would get another opportunity to play in England.
“I still have contract in Rennes, I respect the fans and coach, but life showed me, that you can’t trust all people. That’s why I didn’t sign for Burnley.”
When pushed further by reporters, Grosicki seemed to suggest that the blame ultimately lay with his current club Rennes.
“I was not treated with respect…different words, promises, which at the last moment had been cancelled,” he added.
“We will see how to develop my situation in France. On Wednesday, fell a lot of strong words. I have a long contract with Rennes, I played for this team the best, but (I’m) disappointed (with) some people.”
“It was in my club…a big problem. For me, the word is more important than paper or signature.”
