On leaving Barca, he said: "The renewal? It was all done and at the last moment due to the La Liga issue, it couldn't be done.

"It's exactly like how Laporta explained it. I did everything possible to stay.

"Last year I didn't want to stay and I said it. This year I wanted to stay and I couldn't."
