“There I currently began to see that there were lots of things occurring, that Tottenham consulted with Barcelona, that they had actually practically done it.
“I didn’t understand anything that was happening because I didn’t know anything.
“By the afternoon, the club called me since they wished to speak to me and there they informed me they wished to offer.”
He added: ” I met the directors of the club. They began to inform me that the scenario of the club wasn’t great, that I can be found in a complex time which because of that it was much better to offer.

“They might have acted in another method. There were much better methods to repair things.
