The Brazilian explained he will stay in Barcelona for some days to recover from a plantar fasciitis
Dani Alves has done another good end of season with the club and has shown that he is the favorite starter for the right-back in Luis Enrique's team. The Brazilian is good in attacking, crossing and also has a good sacrifice in defense.
A sample of Alves' dedication is that he has played the last six months with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation in the foot that causes great discomfort when doing sports. For example, Juan Carlos Navarro was one of the players that has suffered this injury in recent years and has lost many matches.
The right side of the club explained this fact once the season has finished and said that he will remain a few days in Barcelona to treat the injury with the medical services of the club. Then, Alves will cross the ocean to compete in the Copa América with Brazil next to Rafinha.
New caring project
The side has made this confession in a press conference to present a charity project to save many lives of people suffering hepatitis C. In particular, the Brazilian will finance 500 treatments to cure hepatitis C in Brazil and 250 in Spain and Bolivia. "Many people suffer from hepatitis C and few can have access to treatment. I live for something more than being famous. If I can help save lives with this, I will be much happier," said Alves in the presentation.
Evaluation of the season
At the press conference, the Barcelona player also spoke about the winning streak of the club and said: "Barça did not get a 10 [A mark], but a 1,000, for all we have done and for what is yet to come." In addition, he said that "I am happy at Barcelona" and also confessed his favorite for the Champions League final: "I want Atlético Madrid to win it because they have worked hard and deserve this title. But whoever wins, nothing will change: Barça is the best in the world; what this club have done in the last 10 years has not been done by anyone else."
