I would like to take advantage of this opportunity that FC Barcelona have offered me to express my deep regret that I will not be able to join my team-mates for pre-season training.
As everyone knows I have been recovering for over a year to return to playing after my injury. Up until now I and Doctor Ramon Cugat and the club's medical services have sought many different paths to find a solution to the problems that I have.
Unfortunately, we still have not found the answer that would allow me to rejoin my team-mates and to be completely happy playing again.
Every day I work hard in order to fulfil my desire of putting this all behind me and coming through this complicated situation that I am in because it has been, without doubt, the worst moment of my career and my life.
I also want to thank the medical staff for the honesty and complete confidence that they have shown in me and they have assured me that there is no reason for me to feel the pain I do to today.
There is no doubt also that I will not let my head drop and I will continue to do everything I can to recover from this.
I also want to thank all my team-mates, the coaching staff and all the medics and physiotherapists that have offered their unconditional support on a daily basis.
I know that I will overcome this and recover.
