Alves threatens to quit Barca

Barcelona's Brazilian defender Dani Alves has threatened to quit the club if fans fail to appreciate his performance on the field.

Barcelona's results and style of play have been criticised by many fans and media pundits since Pep Guardiola's spectacular four-year reign as coach ended in 2012, leading to rumours over the future of players including Brazil international Alves and midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

"How can people forget that these players have been responsible for the greatest football?

"Well, I don't feel like it. That's why there are many doubts over my staying here," Alves said. - AFP.
