“It would be strange to see you wearing another shirt and more against you on the pitch. You deserve a farewell to suit you: one of the most important players in the club's history. Someone who achieves great things for the team and on an individual level.
“You don't deserve them to throw you out like they did. But in reality, at this stage nothing should surprise me anymore. “
