A former FC Barcelona player has spoken about his decision to leave the club, as well as the constant comparisons between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Spain international Thiago Alcântara has been a key player for FC Bayern Munich since he left Barca in 2013.
The midfielder, who has also became an integral part of Spain’s team, has insisted he is happy he didn't stay at the Catalan club, as he believes there is more to football than Barca.
"I do not regret having gone from FC Barcelona," Thiago told Mundo Deportivo.
"Football is global, it does not end at Barca."
Thiago also revealed that he chose to represent Spain over Brazil because he has dreams of winning silverware with La Furia Roja one day.
"I was right choosing to play with Spain. It is a pride, the decision was easy. I love Spain," he added.
"One of my dreams is to lift a title with Spain. I lifted titles in the past that did not feel like mine."
Lastly, the midfielder was asked to talk about Messi and Ronaldo, but he insists the comparisons are unnecessary.
"I'm tired of comparing Messi and Cristiano. It's not healthy for football," he said.
Thiago has represented Bayern on 59 occasions since arriving in Germany, scoring 10 goals and assisting 16 strikes, while he has won eight trophies with team.
