Alex says goodbye with “great sadness”

Alex Song – at Arsenal from 2006 to 2012 – has explained his difficult decision to stop playing.

The Cameroonian posted on Instagram: “It is with great sadness that it is time for me to hang up my football boots.”

“My journey, which began as a child in Yaoundé, playing without boots, barefoot and on hard gravel, gave me the strength and courage to succeed.

“When I moved to France and played for Bastia, I thought I had achieved a miracle. However, this was just the beginning as my journey continued to Arsenal and Barcelona, ​​two of the biggest clubs in the world.”

“So many people have helped me along the way: my wife, my children, my family, friends, my agent, coaches and of course all my teammates, to whom I will forever be grateful.”

“Of course Charlton, West Ham, Rubin Kazan, Sion and Arta/Solar 7 will always remain in my heart.”

“The honor of representing my country also filled me with great pride. I feel blessed with so many great memories that will stay with me forever.”

“Finally, I would like to thank all the fans who have supported me on my journey. I will appreciate everything. I hope we all see each other again soon.”
