There were reports in the Spanish press that the Brazilian refused to take the field against Bayern.
He said: “I have never refused to play. It was a surprise to see that in the press.
“I do not understand why they boo me because I always think about the team and few players do that.
“I think I will see out the two years of my contract here.
“Here in Spain they do not understand my soccer. To play today has been important for me.”
