Jordi Alba is enjoying playing for Barcelona more now that Neymar has left the club.
Neymar departed Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record €222million move in August, breaking up the formidable MSN trident he formed with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
“He is a great player who, due to his circumstances or feelings or thoughts, decided to leave,” Alba told Mundo Deportivo.
Ernesto Valverde has moved Barca away from just a three-pronged attack, and Alba has been one of the beneficiaries – his four assists in LaLiga this season is more than any other player at the club.
“In the end, there are still many more guys who can do a good job and I am delighted with the people there.
“As I said before, I have more space to run into and honest, for me, it’s much better.
“I have regained confidence. With more space on the left I am very comfortable and that is demonstrated in the field. I’m enjoying it in a way I haven’t for a long time.”
