Lecce: Samuel Umtiti’s moving farewell message.

After a wonderful season with the Lecce shirt, Samuel Umtiti will return to Barcelona, with whom he has a contract that binds him until 2026. The French defender wanted to say goodbye to the Salento club with a poignant farewell message, posted on his Instagram profile.

“I would first like to thank Mr. Corvino and Lecce for holding out their hand to me when other teams doubted me. Thank you for your trust. I found a team with values and an exceptional mentality. We had a goal at the beginning of the season and we achieved it through hard work. For me, this salvation is equivalent to winning a title. I am lucky to have been part of this group, this team. An incredible human experience. Thank you guys, to my team, the staff for helping me. Thank you Coach Baroni. Fans thank you for your support from the first to the last day. We are bonded forever . I leave with a heart full of love from you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and Forza Lecce forever,” wrote the rocky 1993-class defender.
