“I’m sorry for Julen because he’s a friend of mine. He’s an exceptional person.

“We played together at Barcelona and have an amazing relation. I want to call him in the next few days.

“It is what it is. It’s football, nobody escapes that. When you have bad results you will not continue in big, big places like Barcelona or Madrid.

‘You either win in or row or don’t have the chance to continue. But in football you’ll have another chance.

“Julen will have another chance to show his value again, like he did with Porto and the national team with Spain.

“I wish him all the best, of course.”
