It is a part of my dream that is coming true. The road was very long, but I have not arrived yet. I need to continue to work, to respect everyone and to show what I am capable of.

Yes I am very proud of what I did at Nantes, and very happy. I could not have done better. I gave the best of myself. Even when I was injured, I wanted to play.
What memories will you keep with you from your time at Nantes?
I will keep good memories, certainly. The President, his son Franck, the people who worked in the office, the coaches, the youngsters at the youth academy… I cannot name them all, but they have all been there.
The President Kita was like my father and Franck like my brother. I want to thank them for what they have done for me. They helped me a lot for my transfer. We will stay in touch.
Nantes will always be in my heart. I will be the first fan. I hope that you will have a good season and reach your aims.
Any words for the fans?
They are from another world. They are truly remarkable. I than them and hope that they continue to push the club, even when it is hard. Even when I will watch Nantes matches, I will also watch the fans!
I want to apologise to the fan that I had some problems with at Lens… it was a long time ago, but I want to say sorry.
The Premier League is a new world for you…
Exactly. It is up to me to work well and to show people that I deserve my place.
