Umtiti instead signed a new deal with Barca and told Canal+: "I hold my future in my own hands. So the club would have to kick me out if I'm supposed to leave. Honestly, I don't know where the Arsenal rumours came from. Overnight, I got a lot of messages from friends: 'Ah, you're going to Arsenal then?' I answered: No, I don't do that. I'm sorry but I'll stay at Barcelona. I came here to win titles. Not to sit on the bench, to see the sun and train with the best players in the world. I love Barcelona and I never thought about a future elsewhere."

You click on their profile and they'd just be a fake profile, so you don't know whether it's true or not. Thinking about it, I was never actually scared about it, because always fans are going to be giving me abuse and whatnot over it. You just kind of look at it and laugh, you think, 'Yeah, all right, as if you're going to come and do that type of thing'."

I can't even go outside because I didn't expect this kind of hostility towards me. I did my job by stepping up as the captain to take the spot kick. I am really disappointed. But at the same time I wish to say sorry [and] beg for their forgiveness."
