The Croatian fotballer said he didn't want to sign for Barcelona

Darijo Srna had the chance to sign for FC Barcelona this season, but in the end he chose to stay at home and today he has extended his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk one more season.

Srna said he didn't want to play for Barcelona: "I am 100% sure about my choice. I told the president that I would rather win the league with Shakhtar than win the Champions League with Barcelona. If I had gone, I wouldn't have forgiven myself". 

The Croatian player is 35 years old and is living the last years of his career: "Yes. I want to finish my career at Shakhtar. When the president told me he was offering a new contract, I accepted. Yes. Barcelona wanted me, but my heart is here".
