Borussia Dortmund Paco Alcácer talked about his time at Barcelona and the opportunities found in the Bundesliga.

He adds that in Spain playing time were not afforded. He also imagines the possibility of playing together with Achraf Hakimi at the Santiago Bernabéu one day.

“Coming home to Spain is always a nice feeling, in Germany, everyone’s a bit surprised at how much time we get off at Christmas,” he stated via AS

“We were back on the 4th and have been training twice a day since the 5th; we’ve come here to work, to get back into the rhythm and so it’s like a sort of mini pre-season. It requires a different mentality because it’s another form of training”.

“It doesn’t bother me to watch Barça’s games but I do put the TV on to watch them. I’ve got friends in the squad, players I really get along well with”.

Leo Messi: “I never had any problems with anyone at Barça and even less with Messi. He wrote to me when I left the team”.

“If a player feels they are important then they are capable of doing practically anything. Confidence is the base in everything. You need confidence from everyone – the coaching staff, team mates, club directors… now I feel like a more complete player, more a footballer. I think I’m a better player and a better person”.

“Would I like to play for Real Madrid? I’m only focused on where I am right now”.
