You know I'm a big fan of Barcelona and I always try to do the best for the team. The most important thing is to think about the club. When we met with the Chairman of the Board I put my position at his disposal, but I enjoy the great confidence of the Chairman of the Board and the entire Board of Directors.

The trust I placed in the president was mutual. We have very good harmony with the sports administration and with the fans. This makes you think again. Thank you for your support on the road and on the field. I believe that if we can fix some details, we will be close to achieving great successes.”

Regarding his decision, he said: It was not an easy decision. In January I informed the Chairman, Deco and the Board of Directors that this was what was best for the club. Now circumstances have changed. Yesterday we talked about it very directly. I believe that the work is not over yet, and I am convinced that we can achieve victory With all the hope in the world.

The players believe in it and I changed my mind. It's a combination of reasons that make me want to continue, especially the confidence of the president, Deco and the players. It's not about money or ego. I saw everyone's confidence And I feel stronger. This is the movie.”
