Obviously, my plan is not to change clubs.“As always, as I said before, the club has the last word, they’re the only ones who decide, because obviously the club is the one who makes the decisions, they are the ones who say you have to go or have to stay, so I’ll respect whatever they tell me.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
