Brazilian right-back Dani Alves criticised Spanish giants Barcelona after his acrimonious exit from the club and said that he joined Juventus to prove them wrong.
He left the Blaugrana on a free transfer in the summer of 2016 and starred in his solitary season with Bianconeri, winning an Italian domestic double and reaching the 2017 Champions League Final, which Juve lost 4-1 to Real Madrid.
“I would have remained there for life but it seemed disrespectful to me that they wanted to throw me out the back door,” Alves told RAC1.
“At Juve, I went to show Barcelona that I was still a top level player, that I had the attributes to say the Camp Nou was my home and that’s what I told them.
“They didn’t have the balls to admit they were wrong.”
