La Liga Star: Why I Snubbed Barca

One of La Liga's brightest stars has revealed why he turned down the opportunity to join FC Barcelona this season.

Enrique: This Is The Best Barca Team I've Had

Argentine forward Luciano Vietto, who had a disappointing spell with Atletico Madrid last season, was linked with a move to the Spanish giants in the transfer window but decided to join Sevilla on loan instead.

The 22-year-old has now admitted that he turned down the opportunity to join the La Liga champions, choosing instead to go out on loan in order to develop further.

"At my age, the most important thing is to get regular playing time and to develop," Vietto told El Larguero.

"And I think I will enjoy more playing time at Sevilla than I would have got at Barcelona. Plus, I think I will get more opportunities here at Sevilla than at Atletico.

"I don't see it as a step backwards, but as a step forward. I was unable to play at my best level at Atletico.

"I want to adapt to my new surroundings as soon as possible."

Vietto made 28 appearances for the Rojiblancos last season, scoring three goals in all competitions.
