He wanted to say goodbye to the club's officials and the public in M??laga: "I have been in M??laga for ten years, and I want to thank everybody who has worked with me for their love and support. I also want to give thanks to the media, because they were always kind to me." The Andalucian midfielder also expressed his admiration for the ex-coach Antoino Tapia, the trainer that gave him the opportunity to perform with the first squad.
