"I've always tried my best, because in a club like Barcelona you have to be always ready. And every time, I was called to play I gave my maximum," Goal.com quoted Malcom as saying.

Malcom said that the Russian Premier League club, Zenit, made a great effort to get him.

"Football is like this, you have to grab your chances. Zenit made a great effort to hire me and they made a very good proposition. I was very happy at Barcelona and I'm sure I will be happy here at Zenit," he said.
