Alba: I know I am one of the most hated player in the world
Jordi Alba says he feels he is one of the most hated players in the world of football. But insists that his behavior off the field is completely different from that on the field.
Alba has excelled for Barcelona since joining the club in 2012 from Valencia. And has made 360 ??appearances to date.
During this period, he has won the La Liga title five times and the Champions League trophy once.
However, the Spanish left-back believes he is the player hated by his opponents because of his fighting style.
“It is clear that people who know me through football, think that I am one of the most hated player in football. That is clear.” Alba told Movistar +.
“It’s because of the way I play and that way has made me today be the player I am and be where I am.”
He added: “Other people who know me outside of the field know that I am a humble person. Who values ??everything in life. Player Jordi has nothing to do with the human being Jordi or Jordi with his teammates.”
