Luis Figo talked this morning in the Laureus Award press conference. He generated a lot of controversy due to a sexist answer to a Catalan journalist: "I never answer Catalan media, but I will do an exception with you because you are beautiful." The former player also explained why he left FC Barcelona and talked about other topics:

FC Barcelona's departure

"I don't have anything against FC Barcelona, but you have something against me. I lived 5 wonderful years in Barcelona."

"I left FC Barcelona for economic and familiar reasons. And for a lack of appreciation."

Barça's defeat vs València

"Honestly, on Saturday I played golf, as well as on Sunday: I didn't watch any match. In my life, there are things more important than Barça and Madrid."

FC Barcelona's negative streak

"I don't know which the problem is. I can't explain."

"In soccer, there are dynamics. When you are in bad dynamics, you can miss penalties with shooting to the stands. It's like when you are at the bottom of the standings and it seems anything goes right."

"It's not about a quality problem. Barça have it."

The end of La Liga

"Anything can happen. Now FC Barcelona have less advantage."
