Brazil international Ronaldinho has once again reiterated his desire to remain at Barcelona despite being linked with both AC Milan and Chelsea in the last year.
After enduring a dip in form, Ronaldinho was back to his best in the weekend win against Real Betis, scoring twice in the 3-0 victory.
When asked whether he thought about leaving the Camp Nou, he replied: "Never.
"People have always been on my side, and that is what motivates me. I go to training every day and always enjoy myself, that is my motivation.
"We are all friends at Barca and treat each other well, we are like a family and that's good. When there is someone being criticised, we will always defend them.
"There is criticism by people who have never played football and do not know what is happening, while there is also criticism from those who have played the game and know how difficult it is and who knows everything that is happening.
"I am at a very good level and I am aware that I can improve and I want to be where I think I can be. The important thing for me is to be innovative and look for ways to keep surprising.
"You need to surprise people, with a dribble, a new play, a pass. It takes creativity to create and I will always try.
"I will never lose my characteristics, because that is what I know how to do and I will always mix it and innovate as usual."
