Matheus Fernandes shocked after Barca's decision

The Brazilian midfielder played in just one game for the Blaugrana.

Former Barcelona midfielder Matheus Fernandes claims he was shocked to hear that Barcelona had terminated his contract.

The Brazilian joined Barcelona in January 2020 and played just 17 minutes for the team. He replaced Pedri in the Champions League group stage match against Dynamo Kyiv and has not played for Barca since. He also won the Copa del Rey without playing for Barca in the competition for a minute, and at the end of the season, Barca informed him that his contract had been terminated. Now Fernandez claims he was shocked with the decision.

“I didn’t know, and when they told me I couldn’t believe it.

“I was at home, I was going out with my wife and I received a message from the club asking if I had the same email address. I confirmed and then received it.

“I didn’t understand it, I sent it to my manager and lawyer. They said it was my dismissal. Time passed and my name came out in the press. No conversation, nothing, they didn’t even call to say hello and goodbye.

“I always had the dream as a child to play for Barcelona. When I got there, they didn’t treat me as a footballer. I told the director that he didn’t treat me like a professional Barcelona player.

“I was a Barcelona player, and I wanted to be treated like one. The other signings had a presentation and I didn’t. I was upset. Looking at it from the outside I thought one thing but when I got there they treated me differently.”
