Barca star Alves defends behaviour

Barcelona right-back Dani Alves has defended his actions after his club´s Champions League exit to Atletico Madrid.

The Brazilian put on a wig and pretended he was his girlfriend, Joana Sanz, providing him comfort following the defeat, and his behaviour was heavily criticised at the time.

However, Alves says he has no regrets and has not changed his mind about the prank, whilst at the same time publishing a photograph of his daughter on social media along with a blind Barcelona fan to whom Alves was kind at the weekend.

“If my children have learned my legacy I will achieve what I should as a father, and the rest I care about enough to know there are more important things.

“Like I said the day of the wig, it’s only a game of football. The true values of life are in many other things,” he wrote as a caption.
