My utmost love to the manager Jose Mourinho. The last seven months with you has totally changed my life. Thank you for believing in me. To my former teammates and the Roma fans, I cherish the wonderful moments we shared together. Thank you Mr. Alberto De Rossi for the role you've played in my growth".
