Barcelona’s Mateu Alemany has stated he is happy to stay in La Liga after being asked about his recent U-turn on leaving the club.
The 60-year-old was set to join Premier League side Aston Villa on 1 July when his contract at the Barcelona giants came to an end. But as reported earlier this week, Alemany changed his mind about making the move to Birmingham and will stay in his current role with former Barcelona midfielder Deco joining him at the Nou Camp.
