Riqui Puig criticises Barcelona’s treatment of players

LA Galaxy midfielder Riqui Puig has discussed his departure from Barcelona. In words picked up by AS, Puig revealed how disappointed he felt with the La Liga club towards the end of his time at Camp Nou.

“It was a tough month because I had never seen that before, leaving players behind in Barcelona and going on a tour without them. Perhaps I understand the club’s position, they want to put pressure on players to leave, but there are other ways to do it. It was really difficult being in Barcelona, training alone, with four other team-mates who were also there with me,” he said.

“After seven years at the club, being in Barcelona when all my team-mates are in Los Angeles playing matches, well, the truth is that it hurt me a lot. It’s a difficult situation and sometimes you have to make decisions and they have made this decision but I don’t agree with it.”
