Barcelona right-back, Dani Alves, has confirmed he will be staying at the Catalan giants and is out to prove a point at Camp Nou.
The 31-year-old was linked with a move away from the Catalan giants but has now rubbished these rumours after he had a private chat with new Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique.
"I've decided to stay here with Barça,” he said at a press conference.
"I live from year to year. When questions were asked I said that I needed to speak with the manager. I wanted to understand his intentions
"I'm certain there were doubts. I like things to be up front and for people to say things to my face. I've won this club's respect based on work.
“I wanted to know that Luis was counting on me to fight for the club and to keep on playing. When I felt that was really the case then it's now up to me to do the work.”
Alves also revealed he felt like a scapegoat and missed the backing of the club, but wants to prove his worth in the coming season.
“The day will come when I need to leave, but I'd like to leave here with the feeling that people believe that they have had a professional at the club,” he added.
“If I left now I'd be going without that feeling. It has seemed that everything going on at the club has been my fault
"I haven't felt supported with everything that's been going on. I have had reports that I was on the market, that they wanted to sign others… but I'm not one for telling stories.”
