Before recently calling Alba up to play for La Roja, Luis Enrique had twice left Alba out from the national squad amid claims in the Spanish media that there was a personal problem between the two men, reports Efe.
"There is nothing to regret. I revealed my desire to play, nothing more. He is the boss; he decides to name a player or not," the 29-year-old said during a press conference after his return to the Spanish side.
"I am very grateful for all the messages and support I have received from my teammates, fans and the media," Alba concluded.
