Braithwaite ensured he left Barcelona as a free agent and was paid in full his deferred wage for the two parties to come to terms.

Braithwaite explained in an interview with Danish media outlet Ekstra Bladet: “Did I take it as bullying, I actually don’t know. But I think it’s important that you always think about other people’s mental health. That’s the way it is. I know how things work in this world. Unfortunately, football is also a business.

“In many ways, I can only smile a little at all the things that have taken place behind the scenes. I think I have disproved many critics. I was top scorer last season before I got injured. But then there was a change of coach, he wanted something else, and that is part of football life.

Braithwaite is expected to star for Denmark against Croatia in their UEFA Nations League clash on Thursday in Zagreb.
