The Barcelona striker, who is sent to make his club debut on Saturday against Real Madrid, told the Guardian: "I think all the bad things I have been through are in the past. I believe I am on the right path now, dealing with the people who can help me, the right kind of people."

“Everyone has different ways of defending themselves. In my case, the pressure and tension came out in that way.
