He added: “If I had not shown anything for three or four seasons I would have understood, but I have scored more than 20 goals each season, I have always had good statistics. Many acquisitions did not live up to expectations at Barça, but I did what was expected of me. I realized that I was not in the plans, I chose Atletico because the club is ambitious and wants to achieve. “

Arrival in the capital: “My family has been used to Barcelona for a few years, it is difficult to explain to children why one should leave when they have life and friends in the city, but it was a welcome step. I never gave up, at no point in my career did I want to show that I could still be trusted. ”
