"I almost do not get the words to express what I feel for the club that formed me as a person and professional.

"I arrived in 2006, at the age of 13, in which I was a child who never thought of living so many wonderful moments and getting so many titles.

"I have been taught almost everything I know about football and I have been able to fulfil my biggest dreams as a youth squad. Now the time has come to take another path in my life."

He also expressed his gratitude toward the team and management and said, " Thank you so much, family. It was an honor"

He added, "To my colleagues, that I have been able to grow by learning from them: Thanks from my heart. I will always wish you the best.

To all the workers, from the first to the last, who have shown me their smile since I was little: I will take you in my heart.

It's been 12 incredible years. You do not know how happy I was to be able to say goodbye to my shirt on. Força Barça and eternal Blaugrana."

 

 

"And last: Dreams and promises"
