Mina wants ‘less pressure’ than Barca

Barcelona defender Yerry Mina has admitted he wants to play at a club where there is ‘less pressure’ and he can play more often.

The Colombian joined the Catalan giants from Palmeiras in January but featured in only five La Liga outings as he struggled to break into the first team.

“I want to play for a team where there is less pressure and where I can have minutes,” Mina said, in quotes carried by ESPN FC.

“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.

“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.

“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.”
