Nolito explains reasons behind Barcelona departure

Barcelona striker Nolito is ready to join Benfica on a free transfer.

Nolito is regarded among the best players outside the Primera Division, but accepts he has little chance of making it at Barca.

"With Messi, Pedro and Villa, and Bojan, who is very good player, moreso Afellay, Jeffren or Iniesta, who can act on the wing, it is very difficult to play in the first team," confessed Nolito.

"And if they make one or two more signings, even worse.

"They are the best in the world, it is very complicated. And if you do not play, you lose confidence."
