Sylvinho: "I am focussed on Barcelona"

Anna Segura

Sylvinho has denied that he wants to leave FC Barcelona during the winter transfer window and stated that he is keen to see out the remaining seven months of his contract because on a personal level “I am pleased with the games that I have played”.

The Brazilian full-back spoke to the press on New Year's Day after training at Camp Nou and spoke about the team's impressive form and his situation at the club after rumours had suggested that he could leave.

Happy at Barça

This season, the 34-year-old has played eight times for the Catalan outfit and he is pleased with the chances that he has been given. “I am pleased with the games that have played in,” he stated. “But of course, I always want to play more.”

A difficult month

Barça return to action after the festive break this weekend and Sylvinho is aware that they must be focussed. “January is as important a month as the others” he explained as Real Mallorca prepare to visit Camp Nou. “They are a team that can complicate things and they have won points here in the past.”

Tricky fixtures

After the festive break, Barça return to action and Sylvinho is keen for the run of good form to continue. “We cannot think about winning sequences each time,” he said. “We have to work hard and we will then improve and continue to pick up points.”
