Speaking about her move she said: ”The thing about moving on is that you can therefore look back – and when I look back, I feel only joy.” The 27-year-old also said: “I enjoyed every minute and I want to thank the players and the fans for making me feel so welcome and at home.” “I want to give a special thanks to all the fans who travelled all over the world to chant and support. You guys have been amazing.”
