"I have never thought about leaving Barça"

Jesús Carrillo

Giovani Dos Santos has insisted that he is very happy at FC Barcelona and hopes to remain at the club for many seasons to come.

The Mexican starlet spoke to the media in the press room at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper training complex in Sant Joan Despí and reflected on his injury situation, his future and the Blaugrana's chances of winning the league title this season.

After missing several games with an ankle injury, Dos Santos explained: "I have spoken to the doctors, the coach and the technical secretary and we have reached an agreement that I would have an injection. I have already had three of them and I am improving and have been given the all clear by the doctors. The decision is, I think, the correct one for me and the team. When the season finishes I will have an operation, but I am very pleased with the confidence that the club has put in me."

The title

There is still a long way to go and we have never lost confidence in ourselves. The situation we are in is down to everyone. Every team fails at some point."

The future

On his future at Barcelona, Dos Santos continued: "I cannot avoid rumours about me going to the Premier League or to any other place. I just live in the present. I am here now and What I would like most is to be here next season and for many more years after that if it is possible. It has never entered my head to leave Barcelona."


"The criticism that Ronaldinho is receiving is excessive," Dos Santos exclaimed when asked about reports that there was little unity within the Barça camp. "It is normal that any player has good and bad moments. It has happened to all players. What is not normal is when everyone continuously goes on and on. We believe in him. There are certain things that have been written are not true. We are completely together. We cannot take any notice of all this stuff we have heard."
