“You are my family, you took me to winning the Euros. I will always love you. Thank you from the depths of my heart to the Squinzi family, who showed belief in me. Thank you to all the teammates who, between a telling off and a speech, made me a man.

“Thank you to director Carnevali, Giovanni Rossi and coach De Zerbi, for whom I will always feel something special. Thank you to all from Fofo to every person who works in this oasis of joy. I love you all so much. Arrivederci, Sassuolo.”
