In a recent interview with RAC1, The 37- year- old has spoken about Barcelona’s situation and his career at the Catalan club which ended with a transfer to

Juventus

at 2016.

“Barcelona are trying to change their philosophy, and it’s normal that they have problems. For me, the club have lost their identity a little and they’re going to have to go through a hard process to recover it.

“I would have stayed [at Barcelona] my whole life, but it was disrespectful to me that they wanted to throw me out the back door. If they had treated me as they should have, I would still be at Barcelona.

“I rejected a lot of money from Real Madrid – like it or not, a great club – to go to Camp Nou, and I didn’t want to fired. I wanted to be able to leave when I wanted to, but I knew they were pushing me out of the club.”
