Eibar fullback Marc Cucurella: Best to leave Barcelona to return later

Marc Cucurella insists he's only focused on succeeding with Eibar.

On-loan from Barcelona, the fullback shone in Eibar's stunning win over Real Madrid on Saturday.

Cucurella told Mundo Deportivo: "I left because I saw that in the first team it was very difficult and sometimes it is better to leave to come back later.

"The truth is I am very happy.

"Eibar has welcomed me very well from the first day, I want to help the team and make a great season."
