“Almost five years of fighting like a madman to get to this moment,” he wrote. “I didn’t think it would take that long, I didn’t know it would be so difficult, but I knew inside my heart and inside my soul that the day would come.
“I’m coming home, from where I’ll never leave. And as I said before leaving, I’m just one more of you. I don’t know how long that dream will last, but may it be eternal while it lasts! See you soon in that most fascinating place, with the same enthusiasm as the first time to help rebuild the best club in the world. I’m coming back home, culers!”
