Alves accuses Barca chief Bartomeu of lying about his exit

Dani Alves has said Josep Maria Bartomeu was lying after the Barcelona president claimed the right-back left the Catalan club for personal reasons.
Alves, 34, joined Juventus on a free transfer from Barca last summer and has since insinuated he moved on because of a conflict with Bartomeu and his board.
Bartomeu contradicted that claim last week, though, suggesting in an interview with Diario Sport that the Brazil international actually left because of a personal matter.
Barca president Bartomeu had said: “Dani’s a nice guy, he got on well with everyone, but he left for personal reasons which only he, his partner and I know about — it’s not to do with what he’s said about the board.”
In an interview with ABC in February, Alves had called the Barca board “false and ungrateful” and said they showed him a lack of respect which ultimately led to his transfer to Juve.
