Adriano Guedes was admitted to James Paget University Hospital in August 2014
Adriano Guedes, 63, repeatedly said the care packages offered to him were not good enough and refused to quit the hospital.
He was admitted to James Paget University Hospital, Norfolk, in August 2014 after suffering a stroke.
NHS chiefs were forced to obtain a court order and evicted him on January 10, saying he occupied the bed "unnecessarily" for more than two years.
It's very bad to occupy a place which should be used by someone in need
Mr Guedes defended himself today, arguing: "I didn't want to stay, and they forced me to stay.
"It's very bad to occupy a place which should be used by someone in need, but I didn't cause the situation. On the contrary – I tried to get out of there."
The migrant – who came to Britain 15 years ago and worked as union official – is now living in a council flat provided by Suffolk County Council.
Adriano added: "I didn't want to stay, and they forced me to stay.
"I wanted to leave but they always offered what they knew I would refuse."
The 63-year-old claims he asked to be moved to a "wheelchair-friendly place" and wanted to see a spinal specialist in London for his injuries.
The case is believed to be one of the UK's worst ever examples of bed blocking
The case is believed to be one of the UK's worst ever examples of bed blocking.
Anna Hills, the hospital's director of governance, said: "The gentleman had been occupying a bed unnecessarily at the James Paget University Hospital for more than two years – and every effort had been made to try to remedy this situation.
"He repeatedly refused all offers of appropriate accommodation organised by our local authority and social care partners, despite being fit for discharge.
"As a last resort, the Trust had to apply to the court to allow us to remove the gentleman from the hospital.

The Department for Health says the average daily cost of a hospital bed is about £400
"The decision to go to court was not taken lightly but our priority has to be considering the needs of all our patients and ensuring that our limited resources, which are under increasing pressure, are available to those who genuinely need hospital care."
A council spokesman said: "Suffolk County Council has worked extensively with our partners as well as the gentleman to explore all options available to him, however they were declined by him.
"We are continuing to work with the gentleman, and all of our partners to ensure he receives appropriate levels of care and support."
The Department for Health says the average daily cost of a hospital bed is about £400, meaning the man's stay at James Paget would have cost about £340,000 for the two years.
