Mario Yepes has confessed he was confused by his situation at PSG.
Paris Saint Germain defender Mario Yepes has confessed he was confused by his situation in the French capital.
The 30-year-old was left out by coach Guy Lacombe for six games after a horror start to the season that saw him concede four penalties.
Yepes returned to Lacombe's starting line-up against Sedan at the weekend and helped the Parisien outfit to a 4-2 victory.
"The first two weeks when I didn't play, I was very sad," Yepes told L'Equipe.
"But I didn't lose faith and I doubled my efforts during the training sessions.
"Clearly in my mind I didn't agree with my ban, but I don't make the decision."
Yepes was offered a contract extension at the Parc des Princes last summer but after the latest incident, he now admits concerns about his future at the club.
"Before Alain Cayzac was officially named chairman, he told me he relied on me and we talked about a contract extension," Yepes said.
"The idea was to end my career here.
"But considering what has happened, we have put that in brackets to see how things will evolve until winter.
"I feel nice here, but at my age, I need to feel important for a team. When I am not on the pitch I don't feel important."
Yepes refused to be drawn on his future and insists he is fully focused on performing for PSG.
He added: "Will I end the season at Paris? In football, nothing is for sure, nothing is predictable. I am just focused on the present moment.
"I will do my best for the team, and then we will see."
