Valon Behrami joins Hamburg and gave an emotional farewell to Napoli. “I hope you win the Scudetto!”
The Swiss international made the transfer this week and took to Twitter in order to say goodbye to the fans.
“It is incredible reading all the messages you have sent me. I didn’t expect this and it makes me even more proud to have worn the Azzurri jersey.
“You are unique in every way, as in any gesture I heard your love for this shirt and your city. I just tried to honour and respect it.
“Now I hope you can finally make your dream come true and win the Scudetto!
“I also thank my teammates and the medical staff, as I leave a group of exceptional people that I was fortunate enough to work with.
“Thank you to the De Laurentiis family for giving me the chance to play somewhere special like Napoli and allowing me to make this dream of a new experience come true.
“In particular I thank director Riccardo Bigon, a great person who helped me in every moment.
“Thank you and Forza Napoli!”
