Dani Alves has revealed the real reason why he left Juventus in 2017, where he spent just one season after leaving Barcelona.


Alves is a very active social media user, often answering question on his Instagram account, with one follower in particular asking why he left Juventus after just a single season, with Mundo Deportivo reporting the news from the 37-year-old Brazilian.


Alves, who is at São Paulo FC right now, stated that it was not his decision to leave right after the 2016-17 season, with Alves claiming that he would be heading in a different direction to Juve in terms of their philosophy.


Alves said "They told me they would change the way they play and it was not true!"


The Brazilian headed to Paris Saint-Germain right after his stint at Juventus, where he spent two seasons with the French giants, and once he felt that his time in Europe was up, he went back to Brazil, signing for São Paulo.


Alves had a very productive career at Juventus, even having great attacking returns, scoring six goals and providing seven assists in 33 games in all competitions that season.


However, he also had his injury problems, particularly a fibula fracture, and he also had to spend some time on the bench, with the likes of Stephan Lichtsteiner taking his place on certain occasions.


Alves has thrived ever since he joined the Brazilian club, playing in a number of positions, making 79 appearances so far since joining them in 2019.
