The loanee from Barcelona appeared on Sky Sports today explaining to the world at large why he opted for Upton Park over a host of other illustrious outfits.
He said: “Some people were saying that I am crazy. For me it was a privilege to come here.
“It was a very big pleasure to have two or three clubs who are playing in the Champions League wanted me to sign.
For me it was not easy decision but I did it because I want to come back to England. I wanted to come back to where I started from.
I think it was very important for me to come back here and just try to play because this league gives me a lot and I just want to give some back.”
