Brazilian left back and ex Barca star, Dani Alves has bid a final farewell to Juventus fans and thanks them for a great year.
Dani Alves denied money being the motive for his decision to leave the Old Lady and apologized to fans of the club on suspicious behavior in the past.
“I would like to thank all the Juventus fans for the year I’ve had, to my team-mates who welcomed me like the professionals they are, for a club that wins and reaches final,” Alves wrote alongside a black and white picture of himself applauding the Juventus fans.
I think that my respect for this club and its supporters was my dedication, my passion and all my effort to make the club greater every single day.
“I apologise to the Juventus fans if sometimes they thought I had done something to offend them. I never had that intention, I just live very spontaneously and few people understand it. Even though it appears that I am not perfect, my heart is pure.
“Today our professional relationship ends and I will carry with me all of those who with love and true heart make Juve a great club
“As everyone knows, I always say what I think and feel, so I feel that I should say thank you to Mr Marotta for the opportunity he gave me, he’s a great professional and someone who loves his job like few others.
“I don’t play football for money, I play football because I love the profession and those who are part of it. I leave it up to you to judge what I have done and worked for. I love football and money will never take me to any other place.”
The player has been heavily linked to a move to Premier League side Manchester City which will see him link up with former Barcelona Manager Pep Guardiola.
