Dani Alves: Why I Can't Return To FC Barcelona
Juventus defender Dani Alves has revealed why rejoining Lionel Messi at his former club FC Barcelona is impossible.
The Brazilian spent eight successful seasons at the Catalan club, where he developed into one of the best right backs in world football.
Alves' exit from the Blaugrana at the beginning of this season was anything but graceful as he opened up about how the club had treated him with a lack of respect.
The defender, now at the Bianconeri, believes there are a few bad apples at the Spanish giants, which is why he will not return to the club he won many trophies with.
"The ego of certain people means I can never return to Barcelona," he said, according to Marca.
"Their egos are huge and they'll never recognise or admit to what they made me feel.
"Everything was very beautiful here but in order to come back, Barcelona would have to rectify a lot of things their ego won't allow."
Alves played 391 matches for Barca, scoring 21 goals and assisting an amazing 102 strikes.
