“Diogo is amazing and everybody knows the relationship we built. What Diogo did for us is absolutely fantastic,” he said.
“I think Diogo is going to the right place and we wish him all the best, knowing that it never be forgotten, especially by our fans, all the memorable moments that Diogo provided.”
