Dani Alves: I’m here to fight, I’m not here to pass time or to live in Barcelona

FC Barcelona icon, Dani Alves has insisted that his return is not for fans while revealing that criticism about his fitness and age will only make him a better player.

Dani Alves was presented as a Barcelona signing for the second time in front of 10,378 supporters at the Camp Nou on Wednesday, and the 38-year-old has now sent a statement of intent to critics.

“I wasn’t born to be second, I was always first. I’m here to fight, I’m not here to pass time or to live in Barcelona,” Dani Alves said during his presentation.Information Guide Nigeria

“I’ve come here to play and fight for a place [in the team]. It’s not because I made history or because of my good relationship with Xavi.

“With my work I’m going to fight and try to contribute. Age is just a number. I just proved it at the Olympics. People will expect the best from me and I will respond as always.”

“I was very tough with the president and insisted that I wanted to come back. This club has given me everything I have,” he explained.

“I didn’t see myself under any kind of obligation, but I was happy to help… maybe that’s why I passed the decision on to Xavi. He called me and told me he wants me to join.

“I need to support my family, the people I look after, but it wasn’t the time to think about that, only about helping Barcelona. Everything else is secondary when you get a call from Barcelona.

“We are willing to do anything to see Barcelona at the top of the table, winning trophies…”

He also admits that it is sad that he will not be playing alongside Lionel Messi.JAMB Result

“If you give me a couple of hours, I’ll go and get him,” Alves joked when asked about Messi.

“History has been written and he will always be remembered. He’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen and had as a teammate.

“You always miss the greats, it’s normal, especially if you have a good relationship with them. It would have been incredible to see him here, but it wasn’t to be. I’ve been to many places, but there’s no place like Barcelona.”
