It was a great honor for me to be the team captain this year. Be the captain in the dressing room. It is a great honor for every foreign footballer, but also a big responsibility. I am also very happy being one of the best footballers in the league. I can only say a big thank you to my teammates, coaches and club staff. Everyone helped me.
