"I had a good relationship with the boy. He explained to me what he felt and it was exactly as Carlos [Queiroz] and I had thought two or three years ago. We never thought we were going to keep him for a long time. To have him for six years, we're very proud of that, very pleased. He's taken this opportunity to have another challenge and I respect him because he was a fantastic player for us. He was a good lad, he caused no problems and we wish him well."
