'I'm one of the most hated footballers'

Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has admitted that he understands why people are so opposed to him in an honest interview.

Discussing reactions to him and how he is treated by fans, he opened up.

"It's clear that people know me for football, I think I'm one of the most hated players in football, I know," Alba explained, speaking to El Dia Despues on Movistar+.

"It's my way of playing and that's made me the player I am today and put me where I am now."

Then people get to know me and know what I'm like, a very humble person and I value everything in my life.

"Jordi the player is nothing like Jordi the human or Jordi with his teammates.

"It's true that I'm very annoying in my way of playing and I understand the hate that people who don't know me give me."
