Dani Alves Says Goodbye To Juventus Fans In Lengthy Instagram Post

Dani Alves has published a goodbye message to the Juventus fans on his Instagram account.
Brazilian defender will probably join Manchester City, where he would be reunited with Pep Guardiola, who managed him at Barcelona.

Alves moved to Juventus on a two-year contract from Barcelona last June and made 33 appearances as the club sealed the domestic double for the third successive year but lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

The 34-year-old’s relationship with the club has deteriorated since the 4-1 defeat by Madrid in Cardiff last month and Juventus’s chief executive, Giuseppe Marotta, told reporters last week that the defender had asked to leave.

And yesterday, the Brazilian veteran posted a heartfelt message to the fans of Juventus, confirming his departure from the club


“I would like to thank all the Juventus fans for the year I experienced, to my teammates for welcoming me like the real professionals they are, for a club that wins and plays in finals," he wrote on his Instagram.

“I think that my respect for this club and its supporters was my dedication, my passion and all the efforts to make this club a greater club every single day.

“I apologise to the Juventus fans if sometimes they thought I had done something to offend them. This was never my intention, I just have a very spontaneous way of approaching life that few people understand… even though it appears that I am not perfect, however, my heart is pure

“Today I end our professional rapport and will take 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.

“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.”
