Barrios ponders Borussia Dortmund future

The 27-year-old has been out of favour this season and could decide to leave Dortmund in order to get regular first-team action.

“I never thought I would live this after all my goals,” Barrios told TyC Sports.

“I am 27 and it’s time to think about my career.

“I feel very good in football terms, but the coach has decided for another player, I have to respect that decision, because I am professional.

“However, I never imagined living in a situation like this having scored so many goals.”

Barrios added: “I have no place (in the team) despite having given so much and I want to discuss my future in the coming weeks.

“It is difficult to go six months without playing.

“It would be easy to just sit on the bench and not get paid for playing, but that’s not my idea (of fun).”

“I have years left on my contract, but I prefer to go another direction if I can not play at the club.”
