I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club and for this city. I have had nine absolutely wonderful years at the club.

Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thank you to the club, the president, the directors, my colleagues, all the staff, doctors, physios and incredible people that make everything work.

Thanks to everyone and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago: Hala Madrid!”
