An FC Barcelona player, who has been a regular starter recently, has revealed why he decided against leaving the Catalan club.
Versatile Spanish player Aleix Vidal was heavily linked with an exit from the Blaugrana in recent weeks, but insisted the club’s belief in him made him remain in Barcelona.
"I've had confidence since I arrived here," he said, according to Sport.
"I give all I can day to day and if the coach is happy then great. You have to keep working, there's no alternative.
"Back yourself and don't listen to what the people say. You have to have a calm conscience about what you do and I have it.
"At no moment did I think about leaving. I’m fine here. There were lots of chances to go to various clubs, but I am here because the club made an effort to keep me."
Vidal has played 18 games for Barca this season, scoring two goals and assisting a further four strikes.
