Former Barcelona player Matheus Fernandes has slammed the club after they released him last month, claiming that they ‘didn’t treat him as a footballer’.
The Brazilian joined the Spanish giants from Palmeiras in 2020 for around €10million but only made one appearance for the club; a 17-minute cameo against Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League.
Upon his arrival, Fernandes did not receive an official presentation and was released by the club in July this year, with his five-year contract being terminated.

“I didn’t know, and when they told me I couldn’t believe it,” he said.
“I was at home, I was going out with my wife and I received a message from the club asking if I had the same email address. I confirmed and then received it.
