Seri insists he hasn't played last match for Nice amid Barcelona speculation
Jean Michael Seri insisted he hadn't played his last game for Nice following their 2-0 home loss to Napoli that saw them exit the Champions League 4-0 on aggregate.
Following the match, Seri told reporters: "We'll see about my future, but I don't believe this was my last game for Nice. If it happens with Barcelona, that's good, otherwise I am happy in Nice."
The Ivory Coast international saw his team badly beaten by Napoli again, with the 2-0 scoreline not reflecting the lopsided nature of the match.
The game also saw a "negative performance" from striker Mario Balotelli, according to manager Lucien Favre. The Italian left his team to play with 10 men at one point early in the second half as he was alerted to a jewelry infraction, during which Napoli scored a goal.
Afterward, Seri called his team's opponents on the night one of the top teams in Europe, as Nice get set to enter the Europa League group stage after losing in the playoff.
"Napoli are a great side who play really fluid football," Seri said. "In my view, they are one of the top five teams in Europe.
"We're disappointed, because the atmosphere in the stadium was incredible."
