Dani Alves has once again confessed his undying love for Barcelona and has said he was still very open to a return to the Camp Nou.
Alves spent 8 memorable years at Barcelona playing alongside some of the greatest names in the game, and the right-back says he is only a phone call away from a return.
He told Brazilian broadcaster Globo TV: “Barça is my home. It’s impossible to say that I wouldn’t go back; I’ll go back tomorrow if they call me.”
“If I was to say that I wasn’t hurting when I left, I’d be lying. It was painful when I left because I think that I contributed a lot to build a great history at Barcelona with results that maybe even the club never imagined.”
“I left with 23 titles in eight years.”
“I gave them good results and they ended up not respecting my history.”
“So much so that when I left they suggested a send-off and I said no, because for me that will always be my eternal home and if you consider somewhere to be home, then you have no reason to say goodbye.”
“How was there going to be a send-off if you’re going to go back?”
Since leaving the Camp Nou in the summer of 2016, Dani Alves has hit out at the Barcelona board, accusing them of a lack of respect.
However, club president Josep Maria Bartomeu had rubbished such talk when he spoke to MD last year.
“Dani Alves doesn’t have any problem with the board,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“He and I both know exactly what his problem was, which was very personal for him and not a sporting one.
“It is an issue that his agent, he and I all know about.”
