The Argentina international returned to the Brussels side late after the Christmas break, leading to speculation he had set his sights on a move away from Anderlecht.

However, he has indicated mental problems were the reason for his prolonged stay in his homeland.

"Was I depressed? I'd say that I was on the edge of a depression," Biglia told Het Nieuwsblad.

"They prescribed me all kinds of medicines. There were some anti-depressants among them, but I immediately told my wife that I wasn't taking those.

"I'm still using medication and Anderlecht know all about it. The most important thing for me is that I know what the problem is. I set myself too many objectives.

"It hurts that some people doubted me. This was more than just migraine. I now realise that there's more to life than just football."

Biglia has made six official appearances for Anderlecht since returning to the club.
