Ivory Coast international Jean Michael Seri says he made the right decision to reject FC Barcelona in the last transfer window.
The OGC Nice midfielder has previously reveled that there was serious interest from the Catalan giants, but the deal never materialised.
However, Seri admitted that he would have probably been a squad player rather than a certain starter at the Camp Nou.
“At Nice I am loved but in Barcelona, I might not have been guaranteed first-team football,” Seri told France Football.
“I know my own capabilities and qualities so it is important for me to be showing this on the pitch every week and whilst I dreamed of Barca, the message from the club was clear.
“At Nice I am a priority and not a complimentary player so it was easy for me to continue playing here and totally regain my full focus on the club.
“I don’t have to prove myself to anyone but for Nice, I want to show that I am playing here because this is the club I want to be at and not out of spite, I am very happy here.”
