This yes, the most powerful statement of the interview is on the rumours that say that it smokes: "I Am a person that always says the truth, do not have any problem in doing it. On the subject to be smoker, am not the first neither the last player that smokes, but when the people sees me in the field, the fans remain happy with me. This is the most important for me. That they think what want to, is me equal. What matters is how am inside the field and the way in which I represent to my club. On this anybody can have at all that reproach me".

It did not explain for the club

Since Luis Enrique substituted him in the rest of the gone of chambers of the Champions in front of the Juventus, Mathieu no longer played more with the Barcelona and knew that his stage in the club had finished .
