The 28-year-old on Wednesday posted a long comment in Spanish on Instagram, with a picture of himself walking off the pitch after a match, with the Chilean national flag round his neck.

He wrote: “You get tired of being criticized with reason and without reason, you get tired of wanting to be defeated, you get tired of saying to yourself "I'll get up again" after crying after a defeat, and you get tired of telling the world and people who are with you, that everything is going well. And the worst, that no one ever realizes how that makes you feel ... I have the back 7?? of chile and it is a huge responsibility, that's why I'm sorry that journalists and bad people criticize without knowing ...”
