Dani Ceballos did not mince words at the news conferences for the Spanish national team as La Furia Roja prepare for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Norway and Sweden.

“I don’t feel sorry for not being there [Madrid],” he said. “I’ve been successful in leaving, now I’m where I want to be and I’m very happy,” he continued. “My idea was to leave, play and enjoy football. In the previous two years I hadn’t done that.”
