"Even though every end means a new beginning it's important to reflect back on these past years and show you my deepest appreciation for the work accomplished.

"It was an unforgettable learning experience for me as a player and for my whole family. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

"To the team, the staff, to all the employees but most importantly to the fans : you will always have a special place in my heart. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

"I leave feeling privileged having this club in my portfolio."
