Special thanks to the fans, my teammates, the club staffs, to the coaches who had confidence in me and gave me the opportunity to grow as a player. However, I believe that the time has come for a new chapter in my career. To the fans, you have been absolutely amazing in the last three years. It has been an exciting one for me in the city of Morocco.
