dear fans of real madrid,

thank you very much for three wonderful years with all of you. my time at real madrid was unique and special for me. sometimes things develop differently, than i would have expected them to a few days ago.

although I'm leaving real madrid I wish you and the team the very best for the future.

now I'm looking forward to my new club: THE GUNNERS!
