After this time, I can only thank everyone at BUL FC, to the staff who made my time here so easy, to all the fans that have supported me since the first day I wore this jersey, to the coaches over the years, to have gone shoulder to shoulder in many, a battle with you has been an honour and to my teammates who helped me settle in since day one not only as a teammate but as friends, it has been an incredible journey and it is with great sadness that I must say goodbye. I will miss you all and wish you the best of luck for the future.
