DEAR STANDARD

It has being an honor to play for this club. Since the first day I got here to me it felt like a dream but the first time I got to the field I realized it was home.To all of my teammates through out my time in this club I want to thank and appreciate you for our time together the good bad difficult sad moments they made me grow as a man and footballer.

To the staff, team manager, coaches, physical trainers, physiotherapists,cooks,gardeners and everyone working here thank you very much for making me confortable on and off the field you contributed immensely to my career path I am very grateful. My wish was to say good bye in person but the circumstances were beyond my control.

Cher supporteurs,
I don’t know the words to use to describe
how grateful and thankful I am. Its been a
very complicated ride since the first
day. The only thing that never changed is
your encouragement and support .I
understand why standard is the best club
in Belgium it’s not only about football but
everything. I am sad to leave but if I
learned anything from my time here is to
always play with your heart fight for the
family accept changes and challenges.It’s
time for a new one I am ready to face it. I
know for sure I have a home with you here
in liege. My famille and I says thank you.
forever a RED
