Alcacer left Barcelona in the summer to join Dortmund on loan.

Spanish striker Paco Alcacer has revealed his unhappiness with his playing time in Barcelona prior to making the switch to Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund on loan.

The forward scored a total of 15 goals in 50 appearances for Barcelona over the course of two seasons before making the temporary move to Germany this summer.

The former Valencia man has been in great form for Dortmund this season and netted a hat-trick in his side’s latest win over Augsburg.

Currently with the Spain squad for the international break, Alcacer stated the reasons for his Barcelona departure while declaring that he is happy at the German club.

“I decided to look for minutes away from Barcelona,” Alcacer was quoted as saying by Marca.

“After having two years with Barcelona and not playing an important role, not everything went as I’d hoped.

“I’m happy now, in the end it comes down to decision making.”

Alcacer has been in fine goal-scoring form for Dortmund.

The 25-year-old refused to reveal the conversations he had with Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde over the summer.

“The decisions that I make, I’ve made them, my conversations with Ernesto (Valverde) are private,” he explained.

“I decided to look for minutes away from the club.

“At Barcelona with Luis Suarez, (Lionel) Messi, (Ousmane) Dembele, it’s very complicated to play.”

The loan move to Dortmund has worked well for the Spaniard so far with the striker grabbing a total of six goals already in three appearances.

The forward will now be hoping to carry that prolific form into the international arena as Spain get ready to tussle with Wales in a friendly on Thursday.
