Genoa midfielder Juan Manuel Vargas has admitted he left Fiorentina this summer because he lacked motivation at the club.
The 28-year-old winger has explained why his time with the Viola came to an end in an interview with Peruvian newspaper El Comercio.
“I wanted to leave, I had lost all motivation,” said the former Catania man. “I decided to change clubs because I wanted to try and renew my career.
“I would never do anything that would put at risk my presence in the national team.”
Vargas joined Il Grifone in late August, and has made one League appearance for them so far. He is currently injured.
