Carles Perez, winger at Roma, ‘does not understand’ why he had to leave Barcelona but said he was ‘happy’ at the Olimpico.
“I don’t understand why I left. Maybe the club needed money, but I don’t know the reason,” Perez told.
Perez, who scored his first Roma goal against Gent in the 32nd round, has again said he’d been sold against his will to the Italian capital:
“I don’t think I deserved to leave.
“Since I was an academy player, I had offers to leave Barcelona. But I always said no because I wanted to play in the first team.
“However, this is now in the past, and I’m happy at Roma.”
Perez has played for La Lupa this season 16 times in all competitions, adding two goals and three assists since he joined in.
Paulo Fonseca’s men are now preparing to face Seville in the last 16 of the Europa League.
