2018 FIFA World Cup Star Opens Up About His FC Barcelona Struggles

An FC Barcelona defender, who individually had a successful 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, has revealed all the struggles he has been having at the Camp Nou since his arrival.

Reports: Barca Star Asks To Leave The Camp Nou

Colombia centre-back Yerry Mina moved to the Blaugrana from Palmeiras for a fee of €11.8 million (R ) in January, but only managed to make six appearances for the club in total before jetting out to Russia.

Talking to the media in his home country, Mina said that he has found it difficult in Spain and his confidence took a massive knock before the World Cup.

"When I saw that I wasn't even on the bench, that I wasn't even being considered, I started to train alone at home. It is tough to watch your teammates and see the matches on TV, it was a difficult moment that I don't wish on any player," the Colombian said, as quoted by ESPN.

"There were very difficult moments that were very sad for me because I was really not doing well. There were moments when I thought everything was going to turn out as I had imagined, but it wasn't like that.

"I felt moments everything came crashing down upon me, I felt that nothing was going right, I couldn't even pass the ball right, or train, I just felt like nothing went right."

The 23-year-old also hinted that he might need to move elsewhere to find regular first-team football.

"I will always try to do my best for me, for my club and I hope that wherever I end up, whether it is at Barcelona or whether I have to leave, I will do it in the best way, but for the moment I am happy at Barca."

Barca To Rival Real For Superstar Winger?

Mina played three games for Colombia in the World Cup and scored three goals in total.

Barca like Downs is a very big team with quality in every position so you can't just go in there and get straight to the starting XI, like in some other teams
