Dani Alves: I Left Juve Because They Didn't Understand Me

Dani Alves has revealed that Juventus didn't understand him on or off the pitch, explaining that he wasn't allowed to put music on in the dressing room, though “little by little it improved”.
The full-back joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer from Barcelona last summer, but he terminated his contract after just 12 months and on Wednesday, he joined Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking on his time at Juventus, Dani Alves told L’Équipe:
“At first I had a lot of trouble because they didn’t understand me, on or off the pitch

“It took some time to make the connection between what I thought and what they thought, and once we found that connection the results came.

“That’s what I could bring them, how to have a good fluidity in the dressing room. Frustration? Here’s an example. In the dressing room we weren’t allowed to put music on. I can’t live without music, without dancing.

“I’m not a crazy person who wants to change all the rules, and everyone has his own way or raising his energy and transmitting it to others. I like for the atmosphere to be joyful, collegiate. We have to find ways of doing that, I was thinking about the good of the collective.

“I was viewed with a bit of suspicion though. Little by little it improved and we had a good second half of the season. Life needs madness, as long as it doesn’t cause you to divert from your principles. But at my base I’m very sound, very sensible. I’m a spontaneous person, but I never try to hurt or bother others.”
