Barcelona keeper Cillessen: I didn't join to sit on bench

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen insists he's happy to fight for his place.

The former Ajax No1 was back on the bench for Barca's rout of Sporting Gijon.

“I want to get out on the pitch as soon as possible because I've not come here to enjoy life, I've come to play football," he said on a video posted to social media.

“It would be a success if we win La Liga. The Champions League, too. And for me it would be a success to win the Copa del Rey. I want to win titles like I did with Ajax."
