He also talked about his contract with the Blaugrana and his intentions for the future.
"Shortly before leaving Barcelona we had a conversation with Neymar. There we had told him things would be difficult.
It has been said that he wants to return to Barcelona again. The football players and all the staff we talked to the administration and suggested we reduce the money on our contracts if that was the problem. We talked to the president and we knew there was something wrong with the Financial Fair Play. So we said we could get in one year what we would get in two, three or four years.
We want to work with the club on any problem that may arise. Lowering our salaries so that we can find a solution with the team to turn Neymar is no problem. But eventually other issues arose. ".
He then talked about his contract expiring in 2022, but did not rule out giving the present to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
"In 2022 I will be 35 years old and whether I will renew depends on my fitness. Thinking now of three years is crazy. I enjoyed last year and it is happening now.
Me along with Ramos at the Olympics. You never know. Why not. Nothing can divert you in life. "
