“After 15 years I have to say goodbye to the club that has seen me grow up and made me who I am. I am very grateful to all the people, coaches, players, physicians, delegates, educators of La Masia, to Koeman who gave me the opportunity to fulfill the dream of playing with the best players in the world and to all the people who have contributed their grain of sand. I have been very happy and will forever be grateful! Thanks Culers!”
