Marco Verratti Releases Statement After His Agent's Comments
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has released a statement to object to his agent’s recent comments that his client wants to join FC Barcelona.
The midfielder's representative, Donato Di Campli, recently claimed that PSG are forcing his client to stay in France, comments the player has now denied.
Verratti has issued a public statement regarding his future in France, and apologised for what his agent said.
"We have had some difficult days. I also saw another statement from my agent this morning. I wanted to say to everyone that it's not my way of thinking, not my words. He works for me, and I want to apologise to the club, the fans, the people who work here," the Italian's statement read, according to AS.
"We have started pre-season training, and I'm very happy to start another one and get back to the club, my teammates, my coach and everyone. I know the club has great faith in me. Once again, I would like to apologise. You know I don't talk a lot and that I have a lot of respect for the club.
"I've been here for five years. If I have become a good player, it's thanks to Paris Saint-Germain, who believed in me at the start. That's why I'm apologising. He (Di Campli) was mistaken with his statement.
"As I said, it's not my way of thinking. I hope something like this won't happen again. We want everyone to be calm. Here, I have always been at 100%. I will continue to give my best for the club."
The Blaugrana are reportedly desperate to sign the player in this transfer window, although his contract with PSG only expires in 2021.
