The Brazilian left Barcelona for Juventus two years ago and didn’t have a proper farewell at the Camp Nou. In an interview with Globo TV, he has explained what made him to leave the Catalans.

“Barca is my home. It’s impossible to say that I wouldn’t go back; I’ll go back tomorrow if they call me. If I was to say that I wasn’t hurting when I left, I’d be lying. It was painful when I left because I think that I contributed a lot to build a great history at Barcelona with results that maybe even the club never imagined.”

“I left with 23 titles in eight years. I gave them good results and they ended up not respecting my history. So much so that when I left they suggested a send-off and I said no, because for me that will always be my eternal home and if you consider somewhere to be home, then you have no reason to say goodbye. How was there going to be a send-off if you’re going to go back?”
