Juventus full-back Dani Alves has blasted Barcelona for being ‘false and ungrateful’ and they ‘have no idea how to treat their players’.
The Brazilian left the club in the summer after eight seasons at Camp Nou where he won three Champions Leagues, six La Liga titles and four Copa del Rey trophies, but he insists his exit shows a lack of respect from the club.
"I like to be loved and when I'm not loved, I leave," Alves explained in an interview with Spanish newspaper ABC.
"Leaving Barcelona on a free was awful.
"During my last three seasons [at Barça] they always used to say Alves is leaving, but the directors never said anything to me. They were extremely false and ungrateful.
"Those who run Barcelona today have no idea how to treat their players.”
