I would like to thank the club, all the wonderful people who work there, the teammates, the coaches, the management, the fans and the whole city for making my stay in Frankfurt unforgettable.

"Eintracht fans, thank you for supporting us in every game. We gave everything for the colors of Eintracht Frankfurt, you in the stands and us on the pitch. Together we were able to write the history of the club by winning the Europa League.

"Thank you for all the love and support you gave me. We couldn't have done it without you. I will carry you in my heart forever.

"Yours Filip Kostic".
