Borussia Dortmund striker Lucas Barrios has revealed he is considering quitting the German outfit as he is frustrated with his lack of first-team action.
Barrios has started just one Bundesliga game this season, despite scoring 16 goals in 32 league games as Dortmund won the Bundesliga league title last season.
The 27-year-old is unhappy at losing his place in the side and he plans to discuss his future with Dortmund in the next few weeks.
"I never thought I would live this after all my goals," Barrios told TyC Sports.
"I am 27 and it's time to think about my career.
"I feel very good in football terms, but the coach has decided for another player, I have to respect that decision, because I am professional.
"However, I never imagined living in a situation like this having scored so many goals."
Barrios added: "I have no place (in the team) despite having given so much and I want to discuss my future in the coming weeks.
"It is difficult to go six months without playing.
"It would be easy to just sit on the bench and not get paid for playing, but that's not my idea (of fun)."
"I have years left on my contract, but I prefer to go another direction if I can not play at the club."
