Daniel Alves has gone AWOL from Sevilla.

Still furious at being priced out of a move to Chelsea last week, Alves refused to travel with the Sevilla squad to Athens for this week's Champions League and Super Cup engagements, says El Mundo Deportivo.

A fuming president, Jose Maria del Nido, snapped: "He has shown a total lack of respect to his teammates and the club that pays him. I say this publicly so the fans of Sevilla know the situation and the professionalism of the player."
