He told the Daily Mail: “I asked to leave a few weeks ago so I can play more and in my regular position, but my request was declined.
“My agent will repeat my request and I don’t know if it will be accepted this time. What I did against Blackburn was wrong, and I have to admit that, but I am a human being and felt very frustrated when I got replaced after 30 minutes of coming on.
“There are things that accumulated and resulted in me acting in this way. I am not playing regularly and when I play, I don’t play in my normal position.
“On many occasions, I played well or scored a goal only to find myself out of the squad or on the bench in the next match for no particular reason. This is very frustrating for me.”
