Belletti happy at Barça

Marc Guillén

Juliano Belletti has said that “right now, I think I am going to stay at FC Barcelona”. However, he is open to other options “as long as they are good for me and for the club ".

Belletti was extraordinarily frank in his press conference on Tuesday, at which he discussed his future as the transfer deadline approaches. “I am happy at Barça and want to continue here. And the club has spoken to me to tell me that they want me to stay” he said. But if an offer comes his way that is of interest to both parties, he has not counted out the possibility of a move. “My brother is in Barcelona at the moment for that reason. He is the one who listens to the offers and tells me if there is anything interesting I should know. Some clubs have asked about my situation, but right now I understand that the club wants me and I want to stay here”.

Belletti did not enjoy much first team football last season, which has prompted other clubs to ask if he is interesting in exploring other options. “All players like to play football and the more, the better” he said. “But I still think I can play a lot of games here”.

Recovered from injury

He went on to explain that he is fully recovered from his recent injury, saying “yesterday I trained normally, I did some rapid movements and sensed that everything was working perfectly.” In training in China, the Brazilian tore cruciate ligaments in his right leg, and missed the rest of the tour, but has now been given the medical all clear.

Well attended training sessions
Today’s training session saw yet another huge crowd watching the players train, this time at the Miniestadi. Juliano Belletti has noticed that more people than ever seem to be interested in watching them train this summer. “I have been in this kind of situation a lot with the Brazil national team, but never at a club. It motivates us and gives us the strength to fight for titles”. But is it not a bit off-putting to always have people watching them when they are trying to work? “When it comes to working, I think it is better on our own behind closed doors, especially during the pre-season” said Belletti. “I like having crowds, but sometimes I think we are better off training alone”.
