But childhood dreams, with hard work and dedication, come true. I can proudly say that I realized my big dream. To all the fans, I felt your support every minute I wore this jersey. I take away a lot of memories, special moments and magical nights that I will never forget. Thanks to all club staff, colleagues and technical bodies for training and constant help every day during all these years. You are all making this club bigger. Now it’s time to embark on a new adventure that once again fills me with enthusiasm and challenges me to continue giving my best every day. Thank you so much for all the support that I know I will continue to receive in this new stage!”
