"My experience at this club will forever stay in my heart, it allowed me to evolve and reach ever higher. This is thanks to you.

"I also want to thank my colleagues throughout these beautiful years. Teammates, my brothers, with whom I shared wonderful moments. I wish you success in the future. Also the coaches who trusted me, who taught me a lot, the medical department and everyone who works at the club."
