Barcelona player: “I’m not playing, I can’t leave, and it’s frustrating”

Asked about his own situation at Barcelona FC, from Belgian NT training camp, 31-year old centre-back Thomas Vermaelen displayed all his resentment towards the club: “Barça told me I can’t leave, despite some clubs being keen on me (Anderlecht and Everton, Reporter’s Note). Now I’m in a troublesome situation, since I’km not playing, and I can’t even play for B squad, since I haven’t been put on that list That’s distressing, frustrating, though I know things can change abruptly in football. There’s an high exit clause for Premier League clubs willing to sign me, we’ll see”. Former AS Roma, Arsenal, and Ajax player is currently on a deal with Blaugrana until June 2019.
