After eight years at Barça, the US international is departing for Marseille. But before leaving, he had a beautiful message for everyone at the club
Konrad De la Fuente is leaving Barça after eight years to join Olympique Marseille. But he didn't want to leave without leaving a heartfelt message on social media to the fans and colleagues at a club that has meant and shall continue to mean so much to him.
"A lot of children dream of becoming footballers from a very young age. Childhood innocence means we fail to appreciate the true scope of the huge efforts that we need to make to achieve our dreams.
Today I must make one of those sacrifices I mentioned, and say goodbye to a club that has given me everything and to say farewell to my family for the last eight years, to say goodbye to FCB.
I want to thank FCB for making me so happy during these years, and most of all I want to thank the team-mates with whom I have shared a dressing room and all the people I have met. You are the true identity of this club.
I promise I will always wear the badge on my chest and wherever I go I shall share the values that FCB has taught me with such affection and dedication.
